The Ministry of Foreign Affairs occasioned by the new illegal NAVTEX issued by Turkey  from 21 to 29 November   reiterated its condemnation of Turkish illegal conduct which constitutes once more a violation of the International Sea Law and undermines peace, security and stability in the region.

The communication states that :

“Unfortunately Turkey is once again blatantly ignoring calls by the International Community and the European Council to refrain from illegal actions and activities that lead to further escalation and tension, as well as the need to comply with international legality. These actions which essentially cancel any prospect for improving EU-Turkey relations,  are talking place, while Turkish officials state that their country’s accession to the EU is a strategic priority “
