Qr-14, 15 March 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Announcement Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Of Greece On The Statements By The President Of The Republic Of Turkey On The Aegean

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 15.03.2019

The announcement made today by the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of Greece related to Turkey’s military activities in the Aegean was inconceivable and found odd due to its timing and content. Turkey holds the opinion that the free use of international airspace in the Aegean should not constitute a contentious issue between the two countries. Greece, on the other hand, claims 10 miles of airspace beyond 6 miles of territorial waters in clear contradiction to the international law. This being the case, the fact that Greece perceives Turkey's flights as a threat, that are in accordance with international law, and presents them as violations is in no way compatible with the Alliance solidarity and good neighborly relations.
