SC-23, 31 August 2015

There are a number of interrelated issues in the Aegean between Turkey and Greece. The absence of maritime boundaries between the two countries, delineated by valid international agreements, is among them. Our position with regard to these issues remains reserved.

Turkey wishes that lasting and equitable solutions are achieved for all these issues, taking into account its fundamental rights and interests. With this understanding, all these issues are being discussed with Greece through existing dialogue channels.
