Just reading an article in the FT

https://www.ft.com/content/83d4ed81-838 ... caccf8fa0c

one of the comments given from a Turkish perception management associate states.

here you are questioning Turkeys role as it’s against Greek, Cypriot and Israel interests.
What about the interest of Turkish Cypriots who have not been consulted by the Greek Cypriots or Turkey which has legal rights as she is not a signatory to UNCLOS 82 and is in her rights to recognise her maritime borders .


Complete oxymoron,

Basically what this person is saying is that Turkey does not recognise the law but she has legal rights under the law to recognize her sea boundary wherever she sees fit. Europeans should therefor support Turkey against their own members and contrary to international law because it is Turkeys right.

logically and rationally, this is incorrect but what can you do when you try to defend an indefensible position.

:roll:

I have been reading a lot of comments on twitter, and other social media platforms recently. I have been reading some disgusting things in general but from Turkish quarters, they are under the beleif that Greece is committing provocative and aggressive acts against Turkey and they are talking about war, stealing islands and raping women....

Its hard to ignore the contradictions and delusions of grandeur.

...while Libya, its Leadership, ignores UNCLOS and all its neighbour's efforts at working cooperatively, it should recall that the UN may remove its support of this government, just as easily as Libya has taken to act against the Universal Principals that the UN is based upon.

Turkey has as an aim, supremacy of the seas that surround this country, despite one hundred years of peace, since the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne. If Turkey is isolated, drilling alone, and without any of the major oil explorer's support, it is because of her hostility to the notion of equality. Cyprus is a stunning example of this belligerence, divided as it is between its "Turks", and those not "Turkish"; as though Cyprus does not exist, and that Cypriots do not exist either.

What is clear is the amazing progress the East Med. Gas Forum has made since its advent just a few years ago. Hard to imagine, Israel sitting with Palestinians, Egypt, Cyprus, and Greece, among others, with such success. In a region torn by bitter animosity this is notable, and it demonstrates that they are not as divided as it seems; this is Hopeful. Hegemony as a notion prospers, while for Turkey it is the biggest threat to her plans. Cyprus may be a focus of these intentions, but not the real issue when one looks at the bigger picture of things; all those not "Turkish" therefore, are similarly threatened.

...if we are not headed for War, it is a good moment for more Tripartite meetings; but it is up to Turkey to decide this one, what with the situation the way it is. No one else would be against such an effort.

Cyprus, where the USA and Russia may find common ground to demonstrate their commitment to Universal Principals, and for this island's Freedom.

...let's not forget that only three years ago there was no East Med. Gas Forum. Who would imagine that one would ever find Egypt, Israel, Greece, Jordan, Italy, Cyprus, and the Palestinians sitting as equals at the same table: this is Hope, and this is what Turkey ignores in defiance of UNCLOS mostly through the threat of force militarily.

...what is the Problem? How is it that the Cyprus Problem has become so complex, beyond the displaced, and beyond the illegal occupation, spanning the sea to Libya, and to the Aegean: never mind Turkey's "safe zone" in Syria, (and in Iraq) another occupation, as in Cyprus on a neighbour's soil.

...let us recall the Treaty of Lausanne, because it is this that Erdogan has tossed out the window, like the Treaty of Sevres, for which he disrupts the region's balance of power with such hostility; for a "new" Turkey, for "Turkishness", and supremacy.

It is a fine line between preparing for war, and placing oneself in an excellent position for negotiations. His delay in Greece is well timed in that regard. There are 2-3 years left for him till his next election campaign, and, to the centennial celebrations of the Turkey founded by these Treaties, then.

Such as it is, the solidarity that the EU should be displaying, is the same solidarity the world should be displaying, and what Russia, one Hopes will display accordingly: values which "we" all support, because I fear Mr. Erdogan may go too far in his own ambitions if left to do so.
