[quote:insertfunnyusername:MV8yMTA0NzE4XzM1NDY5NDcwXzFGNUQzMDU5] During the last decade Turkey tried to explore for oil in the Greek continental shelf and territorial waters but they couldn't find support from the oil companies coz these actions are obviously against intl. law and Greek sovereignty. So on April 27, 2012 they published in the Turkish Official Gazette the decision of the Council of Ministers of 16 March 2012 granting the Turkish State Oil Company (TPAO) licenses for hydrocarbon exploration (2012/2802, 2012/2968, 2012/2973, 2012 / 2974, 2012/2975, 2012/1753). These permits relate sea areas off of Adana, Antalya, Antioch and Mugla and include pieces Greek continental shelf south of Rhodes, Karpathos, Kastellorizo, and pieces of the Cyprus EEZ. Since big oil companies won't do Turkey the favor they decided to buy their own 3D seismic vessel named Polarcus for this cause and they expect to start exploration inthe first months of 2013. http://www.upstreamonline.com/live/article1301880.ece Greece is expected to respond with lots of big military drills in the related regions, one of them with Israeli air-force from what i've read recently. Turksih president Gul in a recent interview 4 days ago said that Turkey has a "right" in the Cypriot EEZ and energy deposits. http://translate.google.gr/translate?sl=el&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=el&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.philenews.com%2Fel-gr%2FEidiseis-Kypros%2F22%2F128490%2Fgia-dikaiomata-tis-tourkias-stin-kypriaki-aoz-kanei-logo-o-ampntoulach-gkioul :doomhole: [/quote]
Greek govt government seems to have decided to submit coordinates for the outer limits of the Greek continental shelf to the United Nations in the first months of 2013. On June 9th 1995, the Turkish parliament officially declared that unilateral action by Greece would constitute a casus belli.
