Turkey’s Blue Motherland exercise severely undermines Greece & Cyprus sovereignty rights
Turkey announced on Monday the initiation of the renowned Mavi Vatan (Blue Motherland) military exercise on 27 February. The Turkish press considers Blue Motherland a formal rehearsal of military operations which underscore the limits and potential capabilities of Turkish armed forces.
The Blue Motherland exercise also dispatches a threatening message to Greece, Cyprus and other regional adversaries including Egypt and Israel. This is the message of war to adversaries who recently have established a strategic quarter based on gas exploration partnerships in their territorial waters – a development which effectively precludes Ankara from pursuing its interests in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
