The US State Department took position on the recent, massive overflights of Turkish fighter jets over uninhabited and inhabited small and big Greek islands in the Aegean Sea.
Responding to a question by a journalist on how these actions impact the stability of NATO, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said:
“We encourage all countries to respect the sovereign airspace of other countries and to operate state aircraft with due regard for the safety of navigation of civil aircraft. Where disagreements exist over the limits of a country’s territorial airspace, we urge coordination and discussion, not provocative actions that could lead to deadly accidents. As a matter of principle, we encourage all states to resolve maritime delimitation issues peacefully and in accordance with international law.”
PS This is the famous US “policy of equal distance” when it comes to NATO partners to which the USA loves to sell fighter jets, missiles and whatever else is needed in times of tension even between neighboring countries.
