TURK MINISTER SAID ROC EXPLORATION WORKS ARE ILLEGITIMATE

Postby boomerang » Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:42 pm

TURKISH MINISTER YILDIZ SAID GC SIDE’S EXPLORATION WORKS ARE ILLEGITIMATE

Turkey has once again clarified the fact that it doesn’t perceive as legitimate, any oil or natural gas exploration efforts, being carried out in a region which lacks an agreement within the framework of international law. Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yıldız has responded to the Greek Cypriot media reports which said the Greek Cypriot Administration would explore natural gas around the Mediterranean in October.

“We don’t think this is normal” Yıldız said in his statement.

The Turkish Minister stressed that international law will apply in this case, since reaching an agreement among all neighboring countries on the exclusive economic zones is envisaged under such circumstances.

Noting that the process of an agreement has not been finalized, Yıldız said Turkey will continue to declare such initiatives as illegitimate on every single platform.

I think what Yildiz (star) meant to say was, "Turkey will continue to declare such initiatives as legitimate on every single OIL & Gas platforms. :lol:

He was just too afraid to state the facts, or else he would be out of a job. :wink:

Could someone please clarify to these MF the meaning of:

1. International laws
2. the 4th geneva convention
3. UN resolutions
4. ECJ rulings
5 ECHR rulings

Because these plonlers have violated every ruling, resolution and broken every law in each case, and yet they have the audcity to complain about international law.

What F idiots, it's no wonder the rest of the world want nothing to do with these 3rd world goat herders.

:) :) I mean you gotta laugh at this cheek a????

Now watch the turkish mouthpieces come on to defend the indefensble.

Hassirktir Turkey.

The minister is right 100%. He has in hand an old firman from the Sultan stating clearly that all GAS/OIL resources in North sea!! belongs to the Sultanat of TurkoMongols .Same piece of paper used several times to prove the ownership of Aegean Islands.

Turkish Cyprus says Greek projects "to cause headaches"

Eroglu said the underwater richness around the island of Cyprus did not belong to Greek Cypriots only, but to Turkish Cypriots and Turkey as well.

The president and the prime minister of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) reacted Thursday over Greek Cypriot party's plans to launch natural gas exploration activities in the Mediterranean Sea.

Speaking to reporters after the Greek Cypriot side announced that it would begin drilling for natural gas in the Mediterranean as of October 2011, Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu said "such a move would cause headaches".

Eroglu said the underwater richness around the island of Cyprus did not belong to Greek Cypriots only, but to Turkish Cypriots and Turkey as well, and therefore, the Greek Cypriot party should not initiate exploration activities in the region.

TRNC's Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk also said that exploring the underground richness around Cyprus before achieving a settlement in the island would lead to several inconveniences.

Kucuk noted that Turkish Cypriots had certain rights stemming from the Treaties of 1960 concerning the waters surrounding Cyprus.

The prime minister said he believed the Greek Cypriot administration would act with common sense and reconsider its decision to explore natural gas.

On Wednesday, Turkish Energy & Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz also said that Turkey did not consider Greek Cypriot administration's planned oil and natural gas projects in the Mediterranean legitimate.

The Eastern Mediterranean region, including the coastal areas near Cyprus, Israel, Lebanon and Syria, is believed to have accommodated a massive amount of natural gas resources.

In 2010, Greek Cypriot administration and Israel signed an accord demarcating their maritime borders to facilitate a search for mineral deposits in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Now Davutoglu threatens an "appropriate reaction". I assume he means Turkey is going to physically prevent an American company from drilling in a sovereign nation's territorial waters. I'd like to see how that works...

Turkey's foreign minister warned the Greek Cypriot government against drilling hydrocarbons in the Mediterranean, saying on Friday that Ankara will show the “appropriate reaction” if Greek Cyprus moves ahead with exploration plans.

“We will show the appropriate reaction if any further step is taken,” Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu told reporters. He said the Greek Cypriot administration does not have the right to embark on oil and gas exploration in the Mediterranean unless the Cyprus issue is resolved and a government representing the entire island is formed.

Turkey's stance is "firm and clear," he said, noting that the Greek Cypriot stance was in violation of international law norms as well.

Davutoğlu's remarks came after a Greek Cypriot announcement that drilling for hydrocarbons off the island's southern coast will start on Oct. 1. Greek Cypriot Energy Service Director Solon Kassinis said on Tuesday that once the drilling starts, the size of hydrocarbon reserves would be clear in two months' time, the Cyprus Mail reported on Wednesday.

Turkey objects to any Greek Cypriot search for oil and gas inside the island's 51,000 square-kilometer (17,000 square mile) exclusive economic zone off its southern coast, saying it is in violation of the rights of the Turkish Cypriot, who run their own state in the north of the island. Meanwhile, Turkey is considering plans to start oil and gas exploration off the coast of Turkish Cyprus.

Look at this typical Davut neo-ottoman logic:

Cyprus cannot delimit its EEZ via bilateral agreements, like those with Israel, Lebanon and Egypt. Instead it must do it in concert with all the neighboring countries, and must apply international law. Sounds like a fine idea till you realise that:

a- Turkey does not recognise Cyprus and therefore will not negotiate with it about anything,

b- Turkey has not ratified the Law of the Sea Convention which deals with EEZ demarcation so even if it did negotiate it would not be applying international law. It would be Davut's law of neo ottoman visions.

c- he says nothing about the EEZ zone of the British sovereign base areas. Do they not also belong to the whole of the Cyprus people? Or does the law there change because they have serious clout?

To paraphrase a Zakynthos rhyme which seems to fit Davut's legal acumen-

You are a great lawyer
You know all the laws
So take a running jump
And fart on our balls

Enough of this pezevenghi game with the Turks. They are proving themselves to be much bigger clowns than the Greeks with each passing day.

I'm confused as to why Turkey does not insist that Israel must not drill for Oil and Gas until they resolve their differences with the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank also have claims on the same Oil and Gas fields as the Israelis, or else "such a move would cause headaches". :wink:
