Greece, Turkey to discuss maritime borders in sidelines of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit

The committee approved the agreement, which would give Turkey access to an economic zone across the Mediterranean, on Thursday.

On November 27, Turkey and Libya's Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) signed the bilateral memorandum. It should not be forgotten that Greece's former leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras attempted to make Trump's abrupt schedule change a Greek political issue in September, claiming that Mitsotakis had not actually received a confirmation of the NY meeting, forcing the US Ambassador in Greece to rebut him publicly and to confirm the meeting had in fact been locked down. Turkey will issue more such permits for the Mediterranean following the deal with Libya, Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said Wednesday.

He added that the Turkish parliament would vote on the Turkey-Libya deal on Thursday.

The eastern Mediterranean has become a gas hot spot with big finds for Cyprus, Israel and Egypt in recent years.

European Union member Cyprus was divided in a Turkish invasion in 1974 after a brief Greek-inspired coup.

In a further statement, the IMB said the gulf region made up 86% of hostage-taking of crew members and 82% of crew kidnappings. The vessel was carrying crude for Indian refiner Hindustan Petroleum Corp, a source at the company told Reuters.

Turkish drilling and exploration ships are now operating off divided Cyprus under agreements with the northern Turkish Cypriot state, which is recognized only by Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed that Ankara dropped its objection to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation plan to bolster the defense of Poland and the Baltic states, adding that it now expected the allies' support in its fight against terrorism.

Greece has warned Libya's ambassador to Athens that if he failed to provide clarifications to the Greek government over the deal he could be expelled, a Greek government spokesman said on Tuesday.

One day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to block the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defense plan for the Baltic states unless the alliance agreed to label the Syrian Kurdish YPG as terrorists, Turkey approved of the Baltic plan after all.
