Thread: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    Northern Cyprus is recognised only by Turkey, a country which facilitates many of its contacts with the international community. After declaring independence from the Republic of Cyprus, Northern Cyprus' relations with the rest of the world were further complicated by a series of United Nations resolutions which declared its independence legally invalid.

    Once again. Northern Cyprus is not recognised by anyone but Turkey, and there is good reason for that, which is the best interests of the international community (ie the international community does NOT wish to encourage or facilitate war as a method of annexing territory or declaring independent states). Consequently, the entity of "Northern Cyprus" cannot have an EEZ. And of course Turkey has absolutely no business stepping in. In fact, the only thing that Turkey is succeeding in, is demonstrating beyond the shadow of a doubt that "Northern Cyprus" is just a puppet entity of Turkey.
    It is not my opinion or alhoon's opinion that "Northern Cyprus" cannot have an EEZ, it is the opinion of the international community. And that cannot be changed by Turkey. Tough luck, maybe Turkey should have though better before launching a land grab. Now, Turkey has to support this entity, without getting any strategic resources in return.
    Unless, of course Turkey wishes to confront countries such as the US and France, which have interests in the oil reserves of Cyprus, Turkey would do well to keep its "Fatih" away from the area, lest a "terrible accident" occurs. .

    One hour ago, Greek and Turkish foreign ministers Georgios Katrugolos and Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu made a joint press conference. Georgios Katrugolos said that : "We know that Turkey have rights at Eastern Mediterranean. No project without Turkish participation is realist. Turkey have rights at the area according to the international law."

    This is breaking news in Turkish media. Sorry that i do not have an English source. Here is a Turkish source: http://www.milliyet.com.tr/son-dakik...dunya-2845925/

    You know what is funny? Greek foreign minister is saying exactly the same thing Turkish forum members are saying in this thread. I wonder what will be the reaction of Greek forum members to what their own foreign minister says.

    Funny? Maybe it's because little Greece has to sit beside an established disrespectful bully. Maybe it's because Turkey has a land army that is so strong that it even worries large western European countries. Yes, i said "worries", Mr. Nato-Partner.

    Your comment would have weight if Greece was really acting as a scared kid overall. We know for a fact that it doesn't. Heck, its not just against Turkey, but Greece even threated EU before. To portray Greece as a bullied kid is to not know the reality on the ground. Greece is as much of a bully as Turkey is in many ways.

    I never said Greece was a "kid". It's a small country, that's it. It also has an unusually high degree of militarization for of course completely obscure reasons.
