Turkey And Libya Agreement Map

The internationally recognized Tripoli government confirmed the new agreements, but did not give details. “If Turkey can sign formal agreements with the internationally recognized government, it will be able to guarantee a share of Libyan oil,” he said. John McCarrick, assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of State`s Energy Resources Bureau, said in an interview on November 29 that the U.S. is committed to TurkStream and Nord Stream II pipeline projects that want to transfer natural gas from Russia to Turkey and Germany — via Turkey and the Baltic Sea. Turkey bought the Russian S-400 missile system after Washington allowed Greece, but not Turkey, access to Patriot missiles. While Greece has Russian S-300 missiles in its stockpiles, it is surprising to many that Turkey, a NATO member, bought Russian missile systems. With a punishable approach against Turkey, the United States has agreed to lift a 32-year arms embargo against Southern Cyprus. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said Turkey`s activities in gas drilling in the eastern Mediterranean were “unacceptable.” Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called on Washington to exercise authority to solve the problem. Meanwhile, the EU has supported illegal attempts in southern Cyprus to divide the region and drill through various companies and partners.

Tensions rose when Greek Cypriot Head of State Nicos Anastasiades reported Turkey, which has begun drilling on the Cypriot island, to the United Nations, while the United States and the EU supported pipeline agreements between southern Cyprus and some European and Israeli countries against Turkey. Turkey, on the other hand, has chosen to follow its path by drilling in the region under the protection of its naval forces, after receiving considerable support from the EU or from the Vice-President of the European Commission of the United States, Josep Borrell, so that the agreement signed by Turkey and Libya is a violation for third countries and that it is not in accordance with maritime law.
