Spokesperson for the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Hami Aksoy.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hami Aksoy, considered that Armenia’s expression of its opinion on the Eastern Mediterranean file constitutes an example of transgressing its borders and its irresponsible behavior, and affirmed that his country will defend its rights there.

He stressed that Turkey will continue to defend its rights and the rights of Turkish Cypriots in the eastern Mediterranean.

Aksoy clarified in a statement on Monday that Armenia is making a fundamental mistake about its position in the global geography and the geography in which it is located.

He said that the issue on which Armenia is trying to express an opinion is related to the eastern Mediterranean and not to Lake Sevan.

He continued, “Armenia, which does not overlook any sea in the region, believes that it has the right to express an opinion about the region after the United Arab Emirates and France, and this is an indication of the malicious agreement against Turkey.”

He indicated that all “evil alliances” would not be able to deter Turkey and force it to back down from protecting its interests in the region.

No free speech to Armenia. Armenians always smear Turkey. They even claim a genocide. How can they have the audacity to be so anti Turkish.

I wonder why Turkey feels surrounded by countries that have been attacked in the past?

Well, maybe it’s time for Armenia to gain some sea access, as the Sèvres treaty planned so…

Can happen if Turkey stays in defiance of the territorial results of the 1923 Lausanne treaty. The progressive Kurdish tribes that backed Atatürk against the conservative Sunni tribes that wanted a Kurdish Caliphate are not likely to fight for an AKP Caliphate.He does not have a Mareşal Liman von Sanders and a military mission that can reorganise the Turk forces to recover from his purges….

And if the “Sultan” goes on with his provocations on Greece, France, etc, with submarines pointing their kiosks into Greek waters and daily airspace violations… He’s so much high on coke that I consider more and more wishable to… start a war, oh, something not too excessive : we demolish the runmways and SAM then to avoid escalation, EMP’ing Ankara : with the C4i TARFU and all the vehicles around too, as we ALREADY have a casus belli with the targetting of our frigate a few weeks ago… Although, I fear a Chamberlain cräp, it’d be MUCH better to put… Read more »
