55316 - After the failed attempts of Turkey

Every new move Turkey makes is indicative of the failure of her previous attempts. 

Each time she reduces the level of intervention.

She began with the Eastern Mediterranean, she continued on with Egypt, then with Libya, afterwards with the EEZ of Greece, then followed Artsakh, and now she wants to intervene in the elections of the occupied territories, which are illegal in any case due to the two UN resolutions.

When the President of Turkey intervenes for the elections, it is firstly obvious that he selects a low grade goal, and secondly, he wants to complicate the new negotiations in regards to the Cypriot issue. 

He has not estimated rightly though, as they don’t concern us, because quite simply what’s of substance, is the beginning of the extraction of natural gas within the Cypriot EEZ.

There is no reason for us to rush.

And if he wants to delay the supposed negotiations, he does so, so that he can be at fault himself.

Because the factitious opening of the Occupied Territories seems already a shallow approach of the entire issue, and yet another proof of Turkey’s desperate foreign policy.
