Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to respond to Greece in the Mediterranean sea after claiming that both Greece and Cyprus have failed to live up to promises made during recent negotiations.
President Erdogan’s comments come as the Oruc Reis research vessel has again set sail in the Eastern Mediterranean sea to conduct seismic research for potential natural resources, a move that had led to increased tensions between Turkey and Greece earlier this year.
“Our Oruc Reis has returned to its duty in the Mediterranean,” Erdogan said, according to Kathimerini.
“We will continue to give the response they deserve on the field, to Greece and the Greek Cypriot administration who have not kept their promises during talks within the EU and NATO platforms,” the Turkish president added.
