Erdogan says no threats can deter Turkey's operations in Mediterranean

ANKARA (Reuters) - No threats can deter Turkey from seeking natural resources in the eastern Mediterranean, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday, adding that Ankara expects actors in the region to take steps to de-escalate tensions.

Greece and Cyprus are locked in a dispute with Turkey over overlapping claims to areas potentially rich in resources. Two Turkish survey vessels are in areas claimed by the three countries. On Tuesday, Cyprus said it was willing to engage with all its neighbours on defining maritime boundaries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sure as heck hope that someone is "working the phones" between Ankara, Athens, and Nicosia, trying to ramp down the potential for war here, as this is another international flashpoint which could flare out of control in a heartbeat.
