Turkey Warns France Against Escalation Over Oruc Reis Vessel in Mediterranean

Previously, the European Union and the United States warned that they would impose sanctions on Ankara if Turkish vessels continue operations in the Eastern Mediterranean, stating that Turkey is conducting the operations illegally.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated on Friday that if Greek forces continue to «attack» the Oruc Reis, his country will retaliate.

His words were echoed by Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, who said that Greece should not provoke the vessel «like it did before», also warning that there would be a response. Cavusoglu also noted that Switzerland has offered to mediate in the conflict and that Ankara has agreed in principle.
