Erdogan says Turkey, Israel can jointly bring gas to Europe

Postby yialousa1971 » Tue Feb 22, 2022 10:18 pm

Turkey and Israel can work together to carry Israeli natural gas to Europe and the two countries will discuss energy cooperation during talks next month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was quoted as saying on Friday (4 February).
The two countries expelled their ambassadors in 2018 after a bitter falling-out. Ties have remained tense since with Ankara condemning Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and its policy toward Palestinians, while Israel has called on Turkey to drop support for the militant Palestinian group Hamas which rules Gaza.
However, Turkey has been working to repair its strained ties with regional powers as part of a charm offensive launched in 2020. In an apparent easing after years of animosity, Erdoğan said on Thursday that Israeli President Isaac Herzog would visit Turkey in mid-March.
“We can use Israeli natural gas in our country, and beyond using it, we can also engage in a joint effort on its passage to Europe,” Erdoğan told reporters on a return flight from Ukraine.
“Now, God willing, these issues will be on our agenda with Mr Herzog during their visit to Turkey,” he was quoted by Turkish TV media as saying.
While Erdoğan has spoken to Herzog amid tensions before, the Israeli presidency is a largely ceremonial role. In November, he spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, the first such call in years.
The discovery in recent years of huge natural gas reserves in the eastern Mediterranean has whetted the appetite of nearby countries but exacerbated geopolitical tensions between Turkey and its neighbours.

Erdogan also said this. :roll: :lol:
Erdogan calls Russia's recognition of Ukrainian breakaways 'unacceptable'

Russia-Ukraine crisis
February 22, 2022 —

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has criticized Russia's recognition of two breakaway regions in eastern Ukraine, underscoring Turkey’s support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

However, unlike Britain or Germany, Erdogan kept quiet on any possible punitive action against Moscow, which supplies nearly half of Turkey’s natural gas and two-thirds of its wheat imports. Instead, he expressed support for a proposal by Ukraine’s beleaguered President Volodymyr Zelensky to put together a summit of the UN Security Council's permanent members and Turkey, Germany and Ukraine. Erdogan will also attend the online NATO leaders summit Wednesday. Earlier this month, Turkey offered to act as a peace broker between Ukraine and Russia, suggesting a top-level trilateral meeting in Turkey.

In one of his sharpest ever statements toward Moscow, Erdogan called the Russian move "unacceptable." “We repeat our call for common sense and respect for international law by all sides," Erdogan told reporters accompanying him during his four-day Africa visit, which he cut short to attend the online NATO summit. In January, the Turkish leader warned Russia against invading Ukraine — a move he said was unlikely — and criticized the West for its failure to deal with the crisis.

A Monday statement from the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs also expressed support for Ukraine's territorial integrity. “The decision of the Russian Federation to recognize the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk Republics, in addition to contradicting the Minsk Agreements [a 2015 blueprint to end the Russia-Ukraine conflict over Donbas], constitutes a clear violation of Ukraine's political unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the ministry statement said. “The Russian Federation’s decision is unacceptable, and we reject it.”

Unless the EU withdraws its renewable energy policy obstacles, I’m afraid there won’t any new gas sources going into Europe... not even those coming out of Erdo’s backside!

Emperor Putin has Europe by the balls…

Don’t be surprised if Russia soon issues the EU with an ultimatum to switch to Nord Stream 2 because the gas from Nord Stream 1 will gradually be turned off!

The only other alternative… import American LNG at an outrageous price!

The EU’s 450 million population should be the EU’s top priority and not Ukrainian losers!

The Ukraine can go fuck itself for all I care… if you’re smart you’ll want Russian gas at $1 p/unit and not imported American LNG at $2 p/unit, just so America can get one over Russia!

Why should a European citizen pay twice as much for energy to support American hegemony?

That's what it comes down to!

Israel does not need Turkey to sell its gas.
Turkey does not dare give Israel what they really want.

Turkey has isolated herself. If Erdogan wants back in so to speak, nothing has changed, as an equal she can act accordingly, and respect her neighbours, all of which are members of the East Med. Gas Forum.

...all of which, recognise Cyprus, and the existence of Cypriots as such.

What? With Greece claiming 97% of the resources in the Aegean and Cyprus approx 70% of North East Med, you think that would be ever acceptable to any Turkish administration, Erdogan or no Erdogan.

Dream on boys.

Greece has the longest coast line in the eastern med and Egypt and Israel are closer to the gas fields than Turkey is.

Besides, Turkey has more land than Cyprus and Greece does. Its only fair that Cyprus and Greece should get a larger share of the sea so its fair.

Since you ignore the sovereign rights of EEZ's, maybe you will understand that BS better.

What was you saying about being a peace loving Cypriot again? :roll:

Clearly you did not understand what I wrote. I have been very clear and factual. But when Turkey whacks Cyprus and Greec perhaps you will get your senses back.

The way EEZ calculates resource rights is full of shit. You put in shit and gues what you get shit out. Of all people you should know that boy, now what have you done with that brush?

There is work to be done.get on with it.

Except Turkey accepts EEZ calculations in the Black Sea because it favours her, but not accepting it in the Med. :wink:

In what way does it favour her? Last I looked Turkey does not have a small island near Crimea so she can claim 97% of the black sea?

You really missing the whole point of the argument? Do you understand why it is unfair for Greece to claim 97% of the sea?
