EU Has Set Specific Timetable For De-Escalation In The Eastern Mediterranean

EU Has Set Specific Timetable For De-Escalation In The Eastern Mediterranean

The EU is monitoring Turkey`s moves and announcements in relation to the Eastern Mediterranean and reiterates that it has set a very specific timetable for achieving de-escalation, Commission and European External Action Service (EEAS) spokesman Peter Stano stated yesterday.

Specifically, asked by CNA to comment on the announcements for the withdrawal of the research vessel Uruc Reis from the area where it used to sail, Peter Stano stressed the following:

"We noted various announcements regarding the movement of the exploration ships and also various justifications for that, but it does not change anything on the main message that it was put by the Foreign Ministers when they met informally at the end of August in Berlin. That the EU needs to see the end of unilateral actions in the Eastern Mediterranean, which are being perceived as provocations by some Member States, which are being perceived as irritancy in our relations and there is a forthcoming discussion on Turkey being held again by the Foreign Ministers in the FAC, next Monday and then the leaders will be discussing Turkey also at the European Council. This will be the opportunity for the Member States to have the full discussion on all aspects of EU - Turkey relationship and also to see how we want to take it forward in light of the recent and latest developments in the Eastern Mediterranean".
