“Competition over gas discoveries in the eastern Mediterranean has combined with bitter regional rivalries to fuel dangerous tensions between Turkey and its neighbours in recent months. Many fear this could lead to direct military confrontation between Turkey and Greece, as the two Nato members and their allies square up over control of the seas.”

USAGOLD note: You probably have at least seen the headlines on trouble brewing between Turkey and Greece in the waters around Cyprus.  Few though know what’s behind the row and what’s at stake. This FT in-depth article will shed considerable light on the subject for those with an interest.
