Turkish President Erdogan stands in front of map showing half of Aegean Sea Turkish
In the latest of a series of provocations against Greece, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stood in front of a picture depicting a map of the Aegean Sea spit in half directly disputing Greece’s sovereignty over many islands.
The optics of the Turkish President standing in front of the map while addressing a swearing-in ceremony at Turkey’s National Defence University, effectively reintroduces the “Blue Homeland” theory.
The provocative photo of Erdogan standing in front the map was posted on the official Presidency’s website, demonstrating it was a conscious decision.
The photo shows Erdogan signing the school’s guestbook. Behind him, there is a map that reads “Blue homeland, 462,000 kilometres”.
The map shows half of the Aegean as part of Turkey’s “Blue Homeland”. The maritime areas around Lemnos, Lesvos, Chios and even east of Crete are included in the map as the “Turkish Blue Homeland”.
