Turkey will send note to UN in reply to Greece

Turkey will deliver a verbal note to the United Nations in reply to a recent Greek motion that argued that the areas Turkey had granted exploration permits in the Mediterranean were deemed to fall within the Greek continental shelf.

The note, which will be submitted in the near future, will say the Greek claims have no ground under international law.

Ankara’s note to the U.N. will stress that the licenses that Turkey has given to the Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) since 2007 are within the boundaries of the Turkish continental shelf in the eastern Mediterranean.

It will also express that Turkey has sovereign rights concerning exploration and drilling for natural resources in these fields that it will continue under international law.
