Qa-98, 13 October 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy In Response To A Question Regarding The Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Us State Department On Turkey’s Seismic Survey Activities In The Eastern Mediterranean

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 13.10.2020

The US has already declared that the Seville Map, representing the maximalist maritime jurisdiction claims of the Greek/Greek Cypriot duo, does not have any legal significance. It is thus a serious contradiction for the US to criticize Oruç Reis’ seismic survey activities as carried out within the Turkish continental shelf. This inconsistency is also being observed in the statements of some EU member states.

The party increasing tensions in the Aegean and the Mediterranean is not Turkey, but rather the GCA and Greece. As a matter of fact, escalatory steps of Greece since September 12 have already been made public by the Ministry.
