L’UE brandit des menaces de sanctions contre Ankara

L’UE brandit des menaces de sanctions contre Ankara
L’Union européenne (UE) ne va pas rester spectatrice des activités d’exploration d’hydrocarbures dans les eaux entre la Grèce et Chypre, que mène depuis le 10 août la Turquie, sur fond de rhétorique guerrière de Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Des opérations qui ont entraîné une réponse de la Grèce.

Ces activités qui visiblement en rajoutent une couche aux tensions entre la Turquie, la Grèce et Chypre, constitueront le principal sujet du prochain sommet du Conseil européen, annoncé du 24 au 25 septembre prochains. Au cours de cette rencontre, des sanctions seront envisagées contre Ankara.

Si la nature et la portée des sanctions ne sont pas encore dévoilées, le ministre français des Affaires étrangères, Jean-Yves Le Drian, souligne que l’UE dispose d’un « éventail des représailles à prendre à l'encontre de la Turquie ».

Il encourage toutefois le président Erdogan, d’ici le prochain Conseil européen, à entreprendre des pourparlers sur ses ambitions en Méditerranée orientale, dans l’optique de faire baisser les tensions palpables.

  1. The Greek Minister for Development, Adonis Georgiades, stressed that Athens is not afraid of a military conflict with Turkey, against the backdrop of the escalation of tension between the two parties in the eastern Mediterranean...

    On Sunday, the Greek City Times website quoted Minister Georgiades as saying, in an interview with THEMA 104.6 Radio, his belief that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is “subject to constant delusion,” adding: “Threats to wage wars and spill rivers of blood in France or insult Macron (French President), in this way, should cause great concern among the Turkish citizens, because it falls outside the scope of diplomatic and political norms. ”

    The minister continued that Erdogan aspires without any doubt to revive the Ottoman Empire, warning Ankara not to make a mistake by underestimating the level of Athens’ willingness to defend its interests.

    He said that whoever believes that Greece feels fear is making a “grave mistake,” noting that the Greek fleet in the Aegean Sea witnessed in the last 35 days the biggest mobilization in decades.

    The minister stressed that “this step led to a sharp increase in the level of combat preparedness of the Greek army and made Greece more prepared for a war scenario than many had thought.”

    Georgiades said that Greece disappointed those who thought that it would collapse under the pressure of “the Turkish commotion,” noting that Turkey is now facing a big internal problem, which is that “a large part of its citizens do not realize that all this harms their lives.”

    He continued, “Things are not easy for Mr. Erdogan, because Turkey is not a superpower as many believe. It is a strong country and deserves to be respected, and it will remain our neighbor forever, but we are not afraid of it … and we will not yield to threats and will not give up on what belongs to us.”

  2. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Fayez Sarraj, the head of Libya's UN-recognized Government of National Accord, have discussed ways to strengthen cooperation to protect the two countries' interests in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish Presidency said in a press release on Sunday...

    "President Erdogan and Prime Minister Sarraj held a productive meeting which will promote the peace, security, and prosperity of the Libyan people and the strengthening of the bilateral relationship", the press release read. "The leaders exchanged views on ways to strengthen the cooperation between Turkey and Libya's legitimate government in accordance with the memorandums of understanding they signed earlier, as well as steps to protect the rights of Turkey and Libya in the Eastern Mediterranean."
    Erdogan has pledged Turkey's continuous solidarity with Sarraj's government and to pursue the immediate restoration of stability in Libya by means of preserving its political unity and territorial integrity, as stated in the press release.

    "Stressing that peace and stability in Libya will also benefit its neighbors and the entire region, including Europe, President [Erdogan] added that the international community must take a principled position in this regard", the Turkish Presidency said.

  3. Moscow rejects any steps in the eastern Mediterranean that could lead to further escalation in the region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Cypriot counterpart Nikos Christodoulides...

    "Russia considers any steps that could lead to further escalation of tensions unacceptable," Lavrov told a press conference.

    This comes after last week Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Greece of lying after the latter said it had never agreed to have technical talks on the Eastern Mediterranean with Turkey hosted by NATO. Cavusoglu said that Athens initially agreed to discuss measures that could help the two countries avoid incidents in the disputed waters but changed its position later.

    Recently, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that the alliance was ready to mediate talks between the two countries, Greece said that it would take part only after Turkey withdraws its ships from the disputed waters.
