CNN Turk foments tensions against Greece: “Something sudden might happen in the Aegean…” (video)

The Turkish pro-government network CNN Turk continues to cultivate an anti-Greece climate, taking aim at Greece’s seismic surveys for gas exploration that began south of Crete and hurling threats such as: “Something sudden can happen in the Aegean too”, on the occasion of the Turkish military campaign in Syria.

The reportage on CNN Turk speaks of a “step that will escalate tensions with Libya”, commenting on the new Navtex for the expansion of ExxonMobil’s seismic surveys south of Crete. The report defiantly claims that the Greek explorations are encroaching on the Libyan EEZ, stressing that the aim is to cancel the illegal Turkish-Libyan pact.

“A step that will escalate the tension with Libya was taken by Greece. Athens announced NAVTEX breaching Libya’s exclusive economic zone. It extended the fossil fuel survey areas in the direction of the coast of Libya (…) It is believed that Greece with this step aims to gauge the reaction of the Government of National Accord of Tripoli”, the report states.

The media outlet attacked, once again, the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, over the recent incident at the Tripoli airport. “The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece, Nikos Dendias, once again targeted Turkey. After the diplomatic crisis caused in Tripoli by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, another step was taken by Greece that may provoke a reaction from Libya,” the report commented.

The Turkish journalist pointed out that Turkey’s “decisiveness” in Syria is a “message” for Greece, which – according to him – disturbed our country.
