Turkey Declares Ownership On Half Of Eastern Mediterranean Waters

Not The Onion: new official Turkish map pushes astounding maritime claims further.

A Turkish diplomat has revealed a map which delineates waters in the Mediterranean claimed by Turkey, amid an ongoing months-long standoff with Cyprus and Greece over Turkish oil and gas exploration and drilling inside Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

“After signing deals with its own puppet state in occupied northern Cyprus and with the pseudo-government in Libya’s Tripoli, Turkey declares that it owns half of the eastern Mediterranean,” Aron Lund, an analyst at The Century Foundation, observes of the newly published map.

Seems Erdogan was inspired by the Chinese, since China claims ownership over the entire South China Sea. But at least the Turks want just 1/2.

Better Turkey than the USA. I have nothing against Turkey owning the eastern half of the Mediterranean, as long as they stay allied with Russia.

So in other words. Screw the other countries in the region, screw international law, so long as Russia gets to profit from it. Now I have truly found a Russian bot, her name is Olivia Kroth.
