Turkey’s Erdogan accuses Greece of ‘sowing chaos it can’t escape from’ in Mediterranean.
RT.com 24 Aug, 2020 22:09
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused neighboring Greece of “sowing chaos” in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, contested by the two nations based on overlapping natural resources claims.
Speaking after a cabinet meeting on Monday, Erdogan blasted Athens for broadcasting maritime navigational and weather advisories, known as Navtex, in areas of Mediterranean claimed by Ankara.
Greece has declared its own Navtex unlawfully and in a spoiled manner...With this approach, Greece has sown a chaos that it will not be able to escape from.
Turkey’s president also claimed that the Greek activities in the area are encouraged by third-party countries, who he said will not help Athens in the event of an open conflict with Ankara.
“The ones who throw Greece in front of the Turkish navy will not stand behind them," Erdogan added, without mentioning any foreign actors in particular.
Greece’s Navtex advisory for the area expires this Thursday, Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas said. The advisory spans over the same period as the Turkish oil exploration mission of its Oruc Reis survey ship, backed up by several military vessels. That mission, originally intended to end on August 23, was recently extended to August 27.
“Greece is responding calmly and with readiness both on a diplomatic and on an operational level. And with national confidence it does everything needed to defend its sovereign rights,” Petsas said.
The waters of the eastern Mediterranean have been especially hot lately, as the two NATO allies sent military flotillas to the contested area, close to a Greek island off Turkey’s southern coast.
Ankara has laid claim to the waters after striking a maritime agreement with the UN-backed government of war-torn Libya, yet this was rejected by Greece and other nations, with another NATO ally, France, even sending it its own naval forces to support Athens in the ongoing standoff.

Renewed hydrocarbon exploration in disputed waters would be an “unwise” move by Turkey, a German government spokesman said as Ankara prepares to send its research vessel to conduct seismic studies yet again.
The spokesman for the federal government, Steffen Seibert, was quoted by German media as saying Ankara’s decision to renew seismic surveys in the disputed area would set back efforts to establish talks between Turkey, Greece and Cyprus, and “would certainly be anything but conducive to the further development of EU-Turkey relations.”
It would be an unwise move for Turkey to begin exploration in a disputed area again.
The comments follow Turkey’s announcement that maintenance was completed on research vessel Oruç Reis and it would restart exploration in the contested waters until October 22. Earlier this month, the EU said it would punish Turkey if it continued exploration activities in the contested waters.
The Oruç Reis has been a considerable source of rising diplomatic tensions between Greece and Turkey in 2020. Ankara withdrew the vessel in mid-September, ahead of an EU summit on eastern Mediterranean issues. Progress appeared to be near as Greek and Turkish foreign ministers met last Thursday on the sidelines of a security conference in Slovakia. It was the first time the ministers had met since the crisis began and both sides looked in good spirits as they agreed on future “exploratory talks.”
Reacting to the move on Monday, the Greek Foreign Ministry described the development as a “major escalation” and a “direct threat to peace in the region.”
Washington 'deplores' Turkey's 'calculated provocation' in the E. Mediterranean as Ankara renews seismic surveying.

Ankara has been criticized by the US State Department for restarting hydrocarbon exploration in contested waters. Washington said the move “deliberately complicates” de-escalation talks between NATO allies Greece and Turkey.
In a statement released on Tuesday, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said: “The United States deplores Turkey's October 11 announcement of renewed Turkish survey activity in areas over which Greece asserts jurisdiction in the Eastern Mediterranean.”
Coercion, threats, intimidation, and military activity will not resolve tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean. We urge Turkey to end this calculated provocation and immediately begin exploratory talks with Greece. Unilateral actions cannot build trust and will not produce enduring solutions.
On Monday, the Turkish exploration vessel, Oruc Reis, returned to sea to continue carrying out exploration activities in the waters south of the Greek island of Kastellorizo until October 22. News of the vessel's redeployment drew condemnation from Athens.
Greece and Turkey had only last week settled on dates to renew “exploratory talks” over the ongoing dispute concerning the Eastern Mediterranean region, and to discuss “confidence building measures.”
However, on Tuesday, Greece’s minister of state told national radio that there would be no exploratory talks so long as the Oruc Reis survey vessel remained in contested waters. “Turkey is the side trying to establish a status quo using violence and threats,” he added.
The Greek Foreign Ministry had already described the development as a “major escalation,” while other European counterparts have weighed in to support Greece. Earlier in October, the EU claimed it would continue to punish Turkey if it maintained its exploration activities in the disputed waters.

Navalny took some pills for nothing? Oh, what a shame!
Full stream ahead! Denmark removes final hurdle for Russian gas pipeline to Europe.
RT.com 1 Oct, 2020 13:31
The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) announced on Thursday that it has given the operator of Nord Stream 2 project a license to conduct operations along that country's continental shelf.
“Nord Stream 2 AG has been granted an operations permit for the Nord Stream 2 pipelines on the Danish continental shelf,” the DEA said, adding that “The permit has been granted on a number of conditions.”
According to the agency, the conditions are expected to ensure the safe operation of the gas pipeline, which is being built to transport Russian gas to European consumers via the Baltic Sea.
DEA’s announcement comes as some politicians in Germany and the European Union had recently issued calls for the sanctioning of and even putting an end to the Nord Stream 2 project, because of the alleged poisoning of Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny.
Earlier in September, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Germany’s Bild that Washington is creating a coalition to hamper Nord Stream 2. He said that he would like to see Germany adopting the US position on the Russian-led project, either because of Navalny or the “real security implications” of dependence on Russian gas.
However, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for the issue of Nord Stream 2 and the incident with Navalny not to be linked.
US administration has repeatedly criticized the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, aiming to derail the project in order to boost sales of American liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe. Meanwhile, many European nations have already stressed that they want to diversify their sources of energy, and the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia could be one of the ways to achieve this.
The new pipeline, which was designed to boost gas supplies to Germany and other European states by 55 billion cubic meters (bcm) per year, is currently nearing completion in the Baltic Sea. Russia had to dispatch its own vessels to lay the final kilometers of the route, after Swiss-Dutch company Allseas withdrew its ships due to the threat of US sanctions.

First reactor of Belarus’ controversial Astravets nuclear power plant achieves criticality, Baltic states are outraged by project.
RT.com 11 Oct, 2020 13:37
The first of two Russian-built reactors at the new Belarusian nuclear power plant, at Astravets, is almost ready to go. Located near the border with Lithuania and Latvia, the Baltic states have fiercely opposed the project.
Along with Estonia, the pair have pledged to stop electricity trade with Minsk when the plant is finally operational. The Astravets nuclear power plant (known in Belarus as BelAes) is a joint project with Russia’s state atomic energy corporation, Rosatom. On Sunday, the first chain reaction was launched at one of the VVER-1200 type reactors and sustained at the minimum controlled power level, Belarus’ energy ministry reported.
The reactor is expected to pass through several tests before it becomes fully operational and starts supplying electricity to the power grid sometime next year.
The nuclear project has outraged Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The power plant is located in northwestern Belarus some 20km from the Lithuanian border and 50km from the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. The EU member has been treating it as a major security threat since the inception of the project.
In late August, Lithuania and its Baltic allies reached an agreement, under which all their electricity trade with Belarus would stop after the plant launched. The countries are planning to introduce a system certifying the origin of electricity.

Lion’s share of Russia’s Arctic LNG destined for Asia.
RT.com 12 Oct, 2020 09:47
Russian gas producer Novatek has announced plans to ship 80 percent of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Arctic LNG 2 plant to Asian markets via the Northern Sea Route.
According to the head of Novatek Leonid Mikhelson, “The plant’s three liquefaction lines with a total capacity of 19.8 million tons of LNG will be launched starting in 2023.”
LNG supplies to Asia will become possible due to the year-round navigation of ships along the Northern Sea Route (NSR), he told participants of the LNG Producer - Consumer Conference in a video message.
Mikhelson added that after the commissioning of the new nuclear-powered icebreakers LK-60, it will be possible to use all the routes of the NSR year-round. “The lead icebreaker Arktika is completing tests and will be commissioned next month,” he said.
Arctic LNG 2 is Novatek’s second liquefied natural gas project at the Gydan Peninsula in Russia’s Yamalo-Nenets Region. Besides Novatek, Chinese CNOOC and CNPC, France’s Total and a consortium of Japan’s Mitsui and Jogmec have a 10 percent share each in the project. Last month, Germany said it may participate in the project with investments of up to €300 million ($354 million).
Russia wants to turn the Northern Sea Route, which stretches the entire length of Russia’s Arctic and Far East regions, into a major trade artery between Europe and Asia. In the first half of the year, freight transportation via the route reached almost 15 million tons. Last year, 31.5 million tons were transported using the Arctic route.

Turkey slams declaration by Cyprus, Greece & Egypt condemning Ankara’s ‘provocations’ in E. Mediterranean.
RT.com 22 Oct, 2020 15:58
Ankara has denounced the “baseless accusations” in the statement of the leaders of Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt on its work in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Turkey’s Foreign Ministry rejected the memorandum issued after the trilateral summit in Cyprus on Wednesday, which condemned Turkish energy exploration in the region.
The ministry in Ankara said the trio’s statements on stability and cooperation target only Turkey. “The only real cooperation in the Eastern Mediterranean is possible with an inclusive stance that includes Turkish Cypriots and all countries sharing the coast,” the ministry said. It noted that the countries that “create problems” in the region cannot provide a solution to the conflict and should change their “hostile policies.”
Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Wednesday that Ankara was “blatantly” violating international law and that “Turkey’s leadership has fantasies of imperial behavior with aggressive behavior.”
Ankara insists, that, despite warnings from the EU, it will continue to search for hydrocarbon reserves in its continental shelf. On Wednesday, Turkey extended the work of its Oruc Reis exploration vessel for another five days in the Eastern Mediterranean.
However, on Thursday, in spite of the current tensions, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar invited neighboring countries in the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean to “meet, talk, discuss, and solve the issues.” He said, however, that Turkey “would not let its rights be overruled” and warned third parties against trying to “set some rules by exceeding their limits, or expect[ing] us to accept those rules.”
Akar also told Bloomberg that Turkey does not plan to integrate the Russian S-400 air defense systems into NATO’s defense architecture. “The S-400s will be used as stand-alones within the national system, just like other Russian-made weapons are being used at NATO,” Akar said, referring to Greece’s S-300 systems.
