Turkish research vessel Oruc Reis, centre, is surrounded by navy vessels as it heads west of Antalya, in the Mediterranean Sea, on Aug. 10, 2020.Turkey vowed Tuesday to press ahead with searching for oil and gas in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, saying it plans to issue new exploration licenses for the area despite an escalating dispute with Greece over drilling rights.

“We are fully determined to continue our seismic research and drilling efforts,” Cavusoglu said during a joint news conference with his visiting Azerbaijani counterpart. “We will defend to the end the rights of Turkey and of Turkish Cypriots in the Eastern Mediterranean and in Cyprus, and we will make no concessions.”

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’s office said the country’s foreign minister be requesting an emergency meeting of the European Union’s foreign affairs ministers. “As usual, Greece has called the European Union to a meeting to support its unfair, unlawful and aggressive policies,” Celik said on Twitter. “The European Union should not allow Greece to turn the whole of Europe into a `Greek theatre,”' he said on Twitter.

“No one can accuse Turkey of not displaying goodwill, but on the opposite side, there is a country with bad intentions. If they are to blame anyone, they must blame Greece,” Cavusoglu said.
