Describing the realm the place the Greek investigations can be carried out as “disputed waters”, the journalist himself “declares” conflict any more, claiming that if there may be an extension of territorial waters or the Sanco Swift strikes past the 6 miles of Crete, Turkey will open fireplace .
“Greece has prolonged its airspace by 10 miles and its territorial waters by 6 miles on both aspect of Crete.
“At this level the US appeared once more. ExxonMobil’s Sanco Swift seismic analysis vessel will start seismic surveys in contested waters.

If the White Home says sure to this resolution and approves the ExxonMobil ship to succeed in the disputed waters, Turkey could have no selection however to shoot any ship that enters the plus 6 miles.
“In different phrases, any more the US can be totally answerable for any battle or conflict that will get away,” provides the Turkish columnist.
And it continues:
“What Greece wants to know is that Turkey won’t ever settle for to be restricted to solely 7% of the Aegean and to be ignored of the sharing of power sources within the jap Mediterranean.
“They won’t intervene if conflict breaks out”
“Both the Aegean will turn out to be a sea of Turkish-Greek friendship or we could have no different selection however to go to conflict once more. Moreover, even when we combat yet another time, we should always come to an settlement on the desk.
“Due to this fact, there isn’t any motive to combat, nor to pursue objectives that may by no means be achieved. The Greek-born US ambassador in Athens simply mentioned they’d not intervene if conflict broke out.
“Does not Greek Protection Minister Dendias see the place the hostilities he instigates to turn out to be the nation’s chief will lead?”
