Ankara, Athens discussed incident in Aegean Sea

Monday (February 12) saw another clash when a Turkish coast guard vessel rammed a Greek boat in the vicinity. He said that the incident did not cause problems.

"Our message, now, tomorrow and always, is clear".

The late-night collision, off an island Greece calls Imia and Turkey calls Kardak, has restarted a row over who owns a rocky, uninhabited islet in the sea that divides them. "But Greece is also a country that must defend its territorial integrity as well as Europe's borders".

Tsipras told coastguard officers: "Challenges and aggressive rhetoric against the sovereign rights of an European Union member state are against the European Union in its entirety".




The secretary general of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Thursday called on Turkey and Greece to ease tensions in the Aegean Sea.

Turkey and Greece, NATO allies, have always been at odds over issues from ethnically split Cyprus to airspace and overflight rights [L8N1Q33Y6] and relations have worsened since Greece blocked the extradition of eight Turkish soldiers that Ankara accuses of involvement in 2016's failed coup.

"Greece is the country that although it has been attacked several times by Turkey, we support its accession to the EU", Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos told euronews. He presented audiovisual material to back his claim.Statements by Turkish Premier Binali Yildirim on Wednesday suggested Ankara is entering phase of de-escalation, but the government said it will remain on full alert.

"H stressed the need to immediately put an end to the growing provocative Turkish violations of the Greek islands΄ territorial waters and the airspace in the Aegean and to reduce tension. It has full responsibility".
