Qa-107, 1 November 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statement Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Of Greece On Turkey’s Seismic Survey Activities In The Eastern Mediterranean

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 02.11.2020

Today (November 1), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece made yet another statement where it repeated its baseless claims regarding the seismic survey activity conducted by Turkey on its own continental shelf in the Eastern Mediterranean.

It is a futile effort by Greece to voice its objections to our activities by asserting its maximalist claims after each and every NAVTEX announcement. Turkey will continue its activities in the region within the framework of its rights stemming from international law.

Turkey is ready to cooperate with Greece and to solve the issues between the two countries through dialogue. Needless to say, we will continue to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus with determination.

We expect Greece to refrain from escalatory steps in the region, contribute to create a suitable atmosphere for negotiations and declare that she is ready for the talks; instead of accusing Turkey with groundless allegations and as usual complaining to third parties.

We hereby invite Greece, once again, to dialogue with Turkey in order to address both the issue of maritime jurisdiction areas in the Eastern Mediterranean and other interrelated issues between the two countries, without preconditions.
