Turkey claims “sovereign rights” over the Greek island of Kastellorizo

Turkey is claiming “sovereign rights” over the Greek island of Kastellorizo and will ‘never compromise on this,” the Foreign Ministry in Ankara said on Saturday.

The post of the Turkish Foreign Ministry comes ahead of the EU Summit next week, where EU leaders will discuss sanctions on Turkey due to its provocative and tension stirring behavior in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

“No sanctions will ever make Turkey compromise on its sovereign rights in Kastellorizo or 10 nautical miles air space,” the statement said among others.

Calling Greece “the spoiled child of Europe,” Ankara calls on its neighbor to “engage in unconditional dialogue better sooner than later.”

  1. How come Turkey signed the Lausanne treaty in the first place? And now they dont want to follow it? Who is the spoiled child here? “Somebody took my showel in the sandbox”…. It is sad to see a country sink that low! It is all a “gesture” to take the turkish peoples minds of what is happening in their own country. The lira is sinking deep in value, they cant manage the corona because their health care system is underdimentioned. And last but not least, they have a government that only sees to its own good. Mr Erdogan, could you please show some sense here!
