Turkey locks Aegean for military exercises early New Year

Even before the ink of the Conclusions of the recent European Council Summit on Turkey’s challenges in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean dries up, Ankara does not seem ready to take a step back.

Taking the baton from the δια caresses and indecision of the European Union regarding the imposition of harsh sanctions – which referred to any decisions for the March Summit – the neighbor proceeded to a new challenge against Athens in the Aegean.

In particular, with the issuance of NOTAM, it commits strategic points throughout the Eastern Aegean for the exercise of the Air Force from January 4 to February 24.

Michelle: Positive agenda only if it stops unilateral actions

The move was preceded by a message from European Council President Charles Michel justifying the EU’s decision not to impose harsh sanctions on Turkey.

Michel noted that there was a decision on the possibility of a positive agenda, “which will be the result of Turkey’s choice to stop unilateral actions and hostile rhetoric towards the EU and its member states.”

It is noted that after the marathon of internal discussions and negotiations, in the text of the conclusions of the Summit, the leaders of the European Union reached decisions on Turkey’s delinquency in the Eastern Mediterranean region, which reflect the compromise between the two poles, which had been formed regarding the stance that Brussels must take.

Thus, the reference to sanctions for illegal drilling in the Cypriot EEZ is explicit, but also to the withdrawal of Oruc Reis as a condition for the resumption of exploratory contacts between Athens and Ankara. At the same time, the refusal of the neighboring country from illegal activities in the Eastern Mediterranean region is considered a necessary condition for the continuation of contacts.

At the same time, the final decision uses harsher language against Turkey on issues related to the Cyprus issue and the refugee-immigrant issue.
