Turkey threatens with war against Greece in a letter to the UN

Turkey sent a letter to Antonio Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, via its representative to the UN, Feridun Sinirlioglu, in which they accuse Greece of “continuous and scandalous” violations of treaties in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean.

The letter states that Greece is not complying with its obligations in the Aegean and the eastern Mediterranean and violates fundamental articles of the Lausanne and Paris Treaties on the militarization of the islands.

The Turks, however, did not only stay on the charges but threatened directly with war, since they write in the letter that these “violations” could lead to escalation and threaten peace, on the pretext that Turkey’s security is supposedly under threat.

“Greece threatens Turkey’s security with this behavior. These violations may lead to an escalation of tension, which will have consequences for peace and security in the wider region.”

Finally, Turkey calls for the demilitarization of the Aegean islands and points out that if this won’t happen then Greece will not be able to claim its sovereign rights and they will not proceed to an EEZ demarcation.
