Turkey- Tensions between Turkey and Greece will escalate into a Military Confrontation
Istanbul -Turkey 01/09/2020
Experts anticipate that tensions between Turkey and Greece won’t be limited to diplomatic threats but will escalate into a military clash especially after Ankara’s decision of launching military training in Eastern Mediterranean. They also confirmed Turkey’s stance in insisting on energy exploration which was corroborated by Turkey’s statements. This coincides with Greece’s attempt to rely solely on France, which at times threat and at different times calls for negotiations. The tensions peaked following Turkey’s decision to send a research vessel for energy exploration which provoked Greece. Accordingly, Greece responded with pledges to protect its sovereignty.
