Turkey says it anticipates that Greece should surrender maximalist claims
Greece should surrender its maximalist asserts and imagine approaches to profit with local assets along with Turkey, said Turkey’s correspondences chief.
Turkey needs great relations with all neighbors, including Greece, and anticipates a similar mentality from them, Fahrettin Altun told Kathimerini, a supportive of government day by day in Greece.
Turkey isn’t obligated for the pressure among Turkey and Greece, Altun said in a meeting distributed Sunday.
Itemizing his contention, Altun underlined that some Greek and Greek Cypriot lawmakers set forward maximalist requests which disregard the privileges of Turkey and Turkish Cypriots and are not in accordance with worldwide law.
They introduced these maximalist requests to Greek individuals as though they are genuine rights, he said.
What Turkey does, in light of these maximalist requests, is just shielding its own privileges in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish authority kept up with, calling attention to that the Greek public is sick and misled about Turkey.
“Turkey anticipates that Greece should surrender its maximalist guarantees and consider approaches to abuse local assets along with Turkey,” Altun said.
Greece has made maximalist sea regional limit claims dependent on little islands only kilometers off the Turkish coast. To lessen pressures, Ankara has called for exchange and arrangements to guarantee reasonable sharing of the area’s assets.
Altun emphasized that Turkey favors a tranquil arrangement through the exchange for each territorial issue that worries itself, and its position is something very similar to the Cyprus issue.
Turkish Cypriots cast a ballot for the Annan Plan in 2004, Altun reviewed and focused on that the chance of concurrence of Turkish and Greek Cypriots in a solitary state vanished for great when the EU supported the Greek side’s participation in the alliance.
“Notwithstanding this, great confidence was showed (by Turkish Cypriots). Notwithstanding, this has limits. Presently, everyone sees that it’s anything but conceivable to live (for Turkish and Greek Cypriots) under a similar rooftop,” he added.
The most practical goal, in this way, is a two-state arrangement with which Turkish and Greek Cypriots would have equivalent rights, Altun commented.
In 1974, a Greek Cypriot upset focusing on Greece’s addition prompted Turkey’s tactical intercession as an underwriter's ability to shield Turkish Cypriots from oppression and brutality.
The Greek Cypriot organization entered the EU in 2004, that very year that Greek Cypriots foiled the UN’s Annan Plan to end the long-term debate.
