“We are vigilant for our interests in the Aegean” sources of the Turkish Ministry of Defense stated about the marine park planned by the government, as reported by SKAI’s correspondent in Istanbul, Manolis Kostidis.

“From the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs on April 8, it was announced that two large marine parks will be declared in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. Our Ministry of Foreign Affairs has taken the necessary diplomatic action regarding the parks that are planned to be declared and has stated that unilateral de facto situations in the islands and islets and rocky islets of the Aegean whose sovereignty has not been determined (EGEAYDAK), will not be accepted, and will not bring about legal consequences” commented the Turkish sources.

“As a Ministry, we remain vigilant in order to protect our interests, rights and interests in the Aegean to prevent Greece’s attempts to establish a unilateral regime,” it added.

Regarding the question of whether the NATO radar at Kürecik transmitted information to Israel when Iran attacked Israel, Turkish Ministry sources stated: “the Kürecik radar was created solely for our national security and aims to protect NATO allied countries. Information received from this radar system is shared with allies as part of NATO procedures and there is no sharing with non-NATO allied nations.”
