Press Release Regarding The Actions Of The Greek Minister Of National Defense In The Aegean

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 07.03.2015

No: 80, 07 March 2015

We considerthe recent actions and statements, which are raising the tensions in the Aegean, of the Greek Minister of National Defense, whofollows a provocative attitude towards Turkey since coming into office, as unacceptable. We invite the Greek Government to display common sense and to take these irresponsible actions under control as soon as possible. It is clear that the continuation of these irresponsible actions will not serve any purpose other than increasing tensions in Turkish and Greek relations and in the Aegean. It is also obvious that this attitude will harm the efforts towards the improvement of bilateral relations between the two countries and the settlement of disputes in the Aegean.

We announce once again to all concerned parties that Turkeyis determined to protect her rights and interests in the Aegean by taking measures within the framework of international law. We emphasize once again the necessity of using the existing diplomatic dialogue mechanisms in order to resolve Aegean disputes.
