Greece and Turkey on the verge of war

Turkey perceives the expansion of Greece’s territorial waters up to 12 nautical miles as casus belli.


According to the Telegram channel “Agenda of Turkey”, after the announcement by the Greek Prime Minister on Wednesday that Athens would expand its territorial waters in the Ionian Sea from 6 to 12 nautical miles, the Greek Foreign Minister announced that the country’s territorial waters would be increased to 12 miles and in areas delimited by the August 6 agreement with Egypt

“Turkey perceives the expansion of territorial waters up to 12 miles as casus belli. Until now, over the decades, in order to avoid reasons for declaring war, Greece has not expanded its territorial waters up to 12 miles for its islands”, – the statement said.

In general, the parties found an opportunity to avoid conflicts over this, but these days everything is completely different. The parties exacerbate the already tense situation.
