Source: Die Linke “With the renewed dispatch of the Turkish research vessel, Oruc Reis’ to the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish government continues to focus on confrontation with EU member Greece. The German government must condemn the Turkish provocation, ”explains Sevim Dagdelen, chairman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group in the Foreign Affairs Committee, on the occasion of the EU foreign ministers’ meeting in Luxembourg. Dagdelen continues: “The sending of the ‘Oruc Reis’ to seismic investigations south of the Greek island of Kastelorizo, among other places, is a clear rejection of Turkey’s dialogue with Greece mediated by Chancellor Angela Merkel, even before it has even started. The fact that the German government has blocked a joint condemnation of the Turkish war provocations in the Mediterranean is taking its revenge. During his trips to Athens, Ankara and Nicosia this week, Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas must clearly state Turkey’s violation of the sovereignty of Greece and Cyprus. What is needed is an immediate and comprehensive stop to arms deliveries and economic aid to Turkey, which acts as an aggressor in the Eastern Mediterranean and threatens EU members. “
