Turkey will resolutely continue to protect its own and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ (TRNC) rights in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

“The main cause of the tension in the Eastern Mediterranean in recent years has been Greece’s and the Greek Cypriot administration’s maximalist maritime jurisdiction area claims and unilateral acts that ignore Turkey’s and the TRNC’s rights and interests,” read the statement.

“Despite the fact that all these proposals are on the table, Greece and the Greek Cypriot have been attempting to engage in unilateral and provocative activities in recent months by increasing the tension in the Eastern Mediterranean,” read the statement.
