Erdogan: “No plan will be viable in the Eastern Mediterranean without Turkey”

“We have a say in every project in the Eastern Mediterranean”

During the ceremony for the launching of the TurkStream pipeline, Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that Turkey had the right to intervene in any project carried out in the Eastern Mediterranean!

“The purpose of our researches in the Eastern Mediterranean is to protect the rights of Turkey and the ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’. In the Eastern Mediterranean, from a diplomatic, legal and economic point of view, there is no chance of a project making it trough unless it includes Turkey. Of course Turkey will have a say in any project in the Eastern Mediterranean, since it has the largest coastline”. /ibna
