Qa-123, 26 December 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy In Response To A Question Regarding The Notam Promulgated By Greece In The Aegean And Eastern Mediterranean

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.12.2020

Our position with regards to reviving all dialogue channels with Greece, especially the exploratory talks, without any preconditions remains unchanged.

However, we see that Greece continues her provocative and escalatory steps in the region. The latest example is the NOTAM promulgated by Greece by which she declared 15 military exercise areas, including the islands under demilitarized status, that blocks Aegean all along and a very large portion of the Eastern Mediterranean starting from January 4 until February 26, 2021.

We call on Greece to act in common sense and responsible manner by contributing to our efforts to strengthen peace and stability in the region within the framework of good neighborly relations.
