Turkey expects EU to be impartial, consistent: Erdogan
Over phone, Turkish president, European Council head discuss bilateral relations, regional issues, particularly Eastern Med

By Sefa Mutlu

ISTANBUL (AA) – The Turkish president and the European Council head spoke over the phone on Thursday, particularly discussing the Eastern Mediterranean, Turkish authorities said.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Charles Michel that Turkey expects EU organizations and member states to adopt an objective and consistent stance on all regional issues, especially on the Eastern Mediterranean, without being deceived by provocations, said a statement by Turkey’s Directorate of Communications.

Erdogan reiterated that Turkey is open to a solution that protects the rights of all parties with a friendly dialogue and negotiations based on justice.

He also underscored that Turkey will resolutely continue protecting its all rights and interests in everywhere and every time against all initiative that ignores its rights with unilateral steps.

The two leaders also discussed the Turkey-EU relations and other regional development, the statement said.

Turkey, the country with the longest coastline in the Mediterranean, has sent out drill ships to explore for energy on its continental shelf, citing that Ankara and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus have rights in the region.

Greece has disputed Turkey's current energy exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, trying to box in Turkish maritime territory based on small islands near the Turkish coast.

Dialogue about fairly sharing resources will be a win-win for all sides, say Turkish officials.
