Greece returns to Turkish newspapers.
Yeni Safak refers to Greek islands given to the USA as broadcast by SKAI’s correspondent in Istanbul, Manolis Kostidis.
Specifically, the article talks about the islands of Samothrace, Lemnos, Mytilene and Skyros.
It is noted that one day after the common message of the European leaders towards the strategic aspirations of Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish provocations started again with interference in the French research ship “Navy Geo”, which is doing research in the east of Crete.
The course of “Nautical Geo” and the Greek response to the Turkish challenge
Normally, the French research ship “Nautical Geo” continues the research of the east of Crete, for the mapping of a possible course of the East Med pipeline, which will reach our country from Israel through Cyprus.
SKAI’s main news bulletin presented the course of “Nautical Geo” until Saturday afternoon as recorded by a special application. He also presented the map with the area that has blocked Greece via navtex for the French ship’s research.
Whenever “Nautical Geo” exceeds 6 nautical miles off the coast of Crete, it receives harassment, mainly by radio, from Turkish warships in the area, as Amfira provocatively questions Greece’s ability to investigate the matter. point point, citing the illegal Turkish-Libyan memorandum.
The response of Athens was immediate, which proceeded to an intense protest to Ankara for the harassment of the ship but also for the issuance of an irregular navtex.
“This continuing Turkish stance is completely unacceptable,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.
It is worth noting that during yesterday’s meeting in Athens, EUMED9 sent a strong message to Turkey for respect for maritime zones and international law.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had Emanuel Macron at his side and the other leaders and officials who attended the summit, calling on Turkey to establish aggressive behavior in Cyprus, Greece and the region as a whole. It was suggested that the EU’s relations with Ankara are recorded in all the conclusions of the European Councils “and now the Mediterranean states are sending their own message”.
