The Turkish government continues to provoke and launch threats in all directions, apparently annoyed by what is happening in the Eastern Mediterranean, especially the military drills held between Greece, Cyprus and friendly nations. 

Responding to a question about French President Emanuel Macron’s statement on the implementation of red lines, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs  said that Turkey was able to prevent those trying to violate its rights in the eastern Mediterranean by sending an “armada”.

In its statement, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that those who think to have drawn red lines against the righteous cause of Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean will only face Turkey’s firm stance.

“If there is a red line in the region, this can only be Turkey’s and Turkish Cypriots’ rights stemming from international law.

It is high time for those, who are in delusion of grandeur, to face reality. The era of defining imperialist conceptions by drawing lines on maps is long gone.”

The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hami Aksoy, added that “Turkey is perfectly capable of deterring anyone, who attempts to forcibly usurp her legitimate rights and interests by dispatching an ‘armada’.”

The statement concluded that “on this occasion we would like to remind that the disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean will be resolved on the basis of equity, not through incitements of non-regional actors, but only by means of dialogue and cooperation among littoral states.”
