The Minister of National Defense of Turkey, Hulushi Akar, warned Greece about the inadmissibility of expanding the boundary of territorial waters in the Aegean Sea and the negative consequences of the implementation of such plans.
“We are decisively not accepting an increase in the boundaries of territorial waters from 6 miles. Everyone needs to know about what serious consequences the erroneous steps are fraught with in this matter. We warn our neighbor so that it does not forget about it and remember that it is false calculations that for false calculations The answer from Ankara will follow, ”the Turkish minister said on the air of the NTV television channel, commenting on reports of Greece plans to expand to 12 miles the sea border near the island of Crete.
Akar reminded in this regard of the decision of the Turkish parliament of 1995, according to which Turkey will qualify the expansion of the existing borders in the Aegean Sea basin as an incident Belli or a reason to declare war.
