Erdogan strikes defiant tone, says wont back back down to sanctions threat

Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey hit back against Greece and vowed to not back down to threats of sanctions or incursions on its claimed territory in the Mediterranean Sea. Turkey is locked in a dispute with Greece over oil and gas exploration rights. After a meeting requested by Athens, foreign ministers from the EU said that Turkey’s actions were ’antagonistic and dangerous’.

That is not an expentionist policy. I am not an Erdogan supported but I am a Turkish citizen. First, please check the map Greece offers to Turkey and tell me if it looks fair to you (Almost no rights in any of the both Seas). And then also please check following ruling of International Court of Justice (of United Nations): 1) Delimitation of the Maritime Boundary in the Gulf of Maine Area (Canada/United States of America), 2) Maritime Delimitation in the Black Sea (Romania v. Ukraine), 3) Continental Shelf (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya/Malta) and more rulings... It is clear that islands are not part of a country's continental shelf; thus, can not be accounted when deciding Maritime Delimitation. The only reason USA and EU try to make it look like Turkey is escalating things militarily is because International Law is not in their side at all. Turkey is in a vulnerable spot due to its incompetent governance in the last 10 years, and USA & EU try to get something they can never get by law through other means...
