Turkish threats: Ankara will respond hard if Athens tries to expand its territorial waters
Greek Foreign Ministry: The delimitation of the Greek EEZ will be established by international law
With new, provocative threats, Ankara returns to the issue of Greece’s right to expand its territorial waters in the Aegean Sea to 12 nautical miles.
The spokesman for President Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) Omer Celik stated that if Greece attempts to exercise its sovereign rights, Turkey will give a tough answer.
“Turkey will respond hard if Greece tries to gradually expand its territorial waters,” said Celik.
