Turkey accuses Greece of ‘piracy’ as tensions rise over eastern Mediterranean

Turkey on Monday accused Greece of “piracy” and warned it will stand up to Athens' alleged efforts to militarise islands near its coast, following claims that the neighbouring country was building up troops on one such island in violation of treaties.

Despite mediation efforts by Germany, NATO allies Turkey and Greece are locked in a dangerous standoff over maritime boundaries and offshore energy exploration rights, which was sparked when Turkey sent a research ship, accompanied by warships to search for gas and oil reserves. The two neighbours have been engaged in competing military exercises at sea in recent weeks.

A member of the European Union, Greece claims the waters are part of its continental shelf and has enlisted the support of the 27-nation bloc, which has condemned Turkey's “illegal activities” and warned of potential sanctions against Ankara.
