"So that Turkey can free its hands in the Caucasus": Turkish drilling ship left the economic zone of Cyprus

93

The drilling vessel Yavuz, owned by Turkey, has left the Cyprus Maritime Economic Zone. Before that, it was located southwest of the coast of the island.


This was announced by Al Arabiya TV channel. According to Refinitiv Eikon shipping, it reached the coast of Turkey.

This step is undoubtedly a factor contributing to the reduction of tensions in the eastern Mediterranean.

According to the newspaper Yeni Safak (Turkey), the Turkish research vessel Oruc Reis, which left the area in mid-September, has completed maintenance in the port of Antalya and is ready to start work if such appears.

Ankara started drilling wells for oil and gas production near Cyprus last year. The Turkish vessel Yavuz began work in July 2019. Yesterday it left the area southwest of Cyprus. Today, according to the tracking data, it was seen near the port of Tasuku in the Turkish province of Mersin.

It can be assumed that Ankara's concessions in the Eastern Mediterranean will help "untie her hands in the Caucasus," where she is supporting Azerbaijan in its conflict with Armenia. Turkey is accused of its aircraft and drones participating in hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh on the side of Baku, as well as the fact that 150 of its officers are actually directing the combat operations of the Azerbaijani army.

We will remind that earlier Cyprus called for the introduction of sanctions against Ankara precisely because the Turks are active in the Eastern Mediterranean - trying to organize the production of hydrocarbons on the shelf. If Ankara's decision "calms" Cyprus, then Turkey can even more actively begin to act in the South Caucasus without fear of sanctions from the EU "based on the position of Cyprus."

        Yes, as if nothing good. In fact, the position of Cyprus hampered the adoption of a package of EU sanctions against Belarus (and Russia up to a heap with Navalny), demanding from the EU sanctions against Turkey for the fact that it claims hydrocarbons near Cyprus. Now Ankara has removed this "nail" and the sanctions agenda against Russia and Belarus "sparkled with new colors." At the same time, he partially relieved the tension in relations with France and the United States that arose because of Ankara's ties with Greece. Along the way, Edik decided that Baku oil and gas lay closer and he could gain a foothold in his "backyard" with much lower costs than somewhere in Libya or butting with Greece, especially here, for his wishlist, Azerbaijanis and Armenians are dying. not the Turks.

          EU sanctions against Belarus have been adopted.
          They did not oppose Turkey.

          Hi Dmitry!
          To be afraid of sanctions, not to go to the forest.
          These sanctions are not us, but they cut off communication with us.
          I am only happy about these sanctions.
          In this way, the EU unwittingly educates a nationally thinking elite in our country.

      Turkey and Iran have so far been successfully bumping their heads over the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. It was not in vain that Israel armed Azerbaijan, thus inciting it to war with Armenia. Iran cannot afford the defeat of Armenia and the strengthening of the role of Turkey in the region due to the large Azerbaijani population of Iran and therefore is pulling troops to Karabakh. Then the conflict between Turkey and Iran, beneficial to Israel. Israel seems to have agreed with the Arabs, but with Turkey and Iran, which are on an equal footing with Russia in the club of guarantors for Syria, no. The conflict, and even more so the war between Israel's main competitors in the region, Turkey and Iran. Israel itself is very beneficial. It is not in vain that it throws firewood into the fire of war, bringing more and more weapons to Azerbaijan. The main thing is to force Iran to intervene because of the defeat of Armenia, and there will already begin a chain reaction in the region.

      Rather, on the contrary, to relieve tension with Greece, and not break into several chairs, fighting on several fronts at once, and not give Russia more control in Syria than there is, as well as limit not only influence in Libya, but also kindle a fire in the Caucasus, Armenia and the NGK, perdogan like a thorn in the eye, if Russia is in tune with Armenia, then get distracted from Syria and Libya, and then the perdogan will be able to venture into these territories and again move their troops further into the depths, and there oil and the States are close by, so this is an attempt distract the Greeks from the sanctions against Turkey and the imposition of sanctions against Belarus Belarus, thereby limiting Russia's opportunities in that region, something like this hi
      And the Turks will again return to the territorial waters of Greece and will start drilling again, this is just for show, the perdogan will not miss his hi

            But Erdogan understands that as soon as he gets into the topic in the Caucasus, he will receive new sanctions.
            And should we know that for sanctions and a reason is not needed.
            The only thing that really restrains the EU from Turkey's sanctions is Erdogan's possession of the "gateway" on the dam of the great refugee storage.

              You are very naive or stupid. What sanctions will Erdogan receive for the Caucasus? Is that a ban on the export of tomatoes to Russia ... And the Europeans at all times were only happy to play off Turkey and Russia in the Caucasus. And in our time, nothing has changed. They will call for peace in words, but in reality they will not do anything, and behind the scenes they will even rub their hands if they manage to bump their heads against Turkey and the Russian Federation. The EU will not impose sanctions against Turkey because of Armenia. In the EU, only France, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia really empathize with the Armenians, but this is not enough.

                There are many options for sanctions against Turkey.
                And where are the sanctions from Russia.
                Why should Russia impose sanctions on Turkey.
                Karabakh is not a problem for Russia.
                The integrity of Armenia is not indifferent to Russia.
                Russia will defend Armenia.
                And Russia recognizes Karabakh as the territory of Azerbaijan.
                Russia can intervene only if the facts of the genocide of Azerbaijan against the Armenian population of Karabakh are revealed.
                And in no other complicity ..
                Perhaps Azerbaijan and Armenia will request the entry of Russian peacekeepers.

And Turkey has already got into the topic in the Caucasus, as it has incited and pumped up Azerbaijan with weapons for the war against Armenia. And Karabakh is just not a problem for Europe, but a problem for Russia, since two friendly peoples are fighting, two neighbors, not far from our territories, while one of the parties uses terrorists in the war, so for us this is just - such a problem, the solution of which is to reconcile the parties as soon as possible.

              Why would it suddenly? He didn't get it for Syria, he didn't get it for Libya, but will he get it for squeezing Russia out of the Transcaucasus? What will that get? Sanctions or a letter of gratitude from the Washington regional committee? I rather believe in the latter.

      This suicide (Armenia) of course can make different beautiful gestures (revolutions, statements, negotiations with contracts ...) but they will lead to only one sad result - death !!!

          Yes, everything is true, but so far the war in Karabakh no one can help Armenia. So one of the options is the expulsion of Pashinyan. Although one cannot but consider the option that all this is happening in order to expel the Russian Federation from the region. Well, in the long term, and Turkey.

    How does this "untie" Ankara's hands?
    I reread it twice and did not understand.
    And from Ankara, as from a balloon, they inflated a superpower, and the whole "news" is a shadow on the fence.
    The Republic of Turkey dreams of becoming a self-sufficient state, a regional leader, but this is far from it.
    Of course, the Republic of Turkey supports the Republic of Azerbaijan, including through military-technical cooperation, but no more. Can do something big, but only if the Master allows.
    For years, the Turks were eager to enter the EU, under the same Erdogan he had steam from one place. The owner of both Turkey and the EU is the same, but the Master did not allow and the Turks did not achieve anything.

    Turkey is not able to butt the EU and even more so with the Master. They will cut off the oxygen and Turkey will be blown away in half a year. Erdogan is very ambitious, his predecessors did a lot to make Turkey as independent as possible, but not everyone succeeded. And the Islamists are in a hurry now, and in my humble opinion, this will not end well for Turkey.

      and who do you think is stronger than Turkey in the BV? Israel is only comparable .. but Israel's policy is mainly not to get into them .. and butting with the "Master" and the EU is no longer a regional leader, but a planetary one .. So, they are already a regional leader leader..
      and if they were banned, they would not help Azerbaijan now .. it means either they did not ban it or they hammered the ban .. in 1 case, they act in the interests of the "owner", in 2 case, the "owner", as if not very much the owner ..
      and Karabakh is quite suitable to infringe on the Russian Federation in the interests of the "owner" .. since we have no legal grounds for acting for the Armenians, and invading Azerbaijan by force is the stupidest thing we can do in today's realities. and is it necessary ..
      Conclusions: a) no one will block oxygen in Turkey, because it acts in the interests of the "master". b) As long as it acts in the interests of the "owner", it is still the regional leader of the BV. c) A regional leader acting without regard to planetary leaders is no longer regional, but one of the world (if we talk about this very status of a regional leader).
      Bottom line: You are wrong - Turkey is today the regional leader of the BV, but certainly not a "superpower".

              And how the EU sanctions can seriously damage my father? He seems to have no pronounced oligarchs with offshore companies, the economy is not strongly tied to the EU - he himself can inflate transit duties. In addition, purely political things - for example, the Minsk platform for negotiations on Ukraine will be covered. Representatives of the LDNR are unlikely to go to Paris, and the Europeans may fall under retaliatory sanctions.

    Most likely nothing was found. If they found the torch from the well testing, it would be visible for tens of kilometers and they would know about it. It is also impossible to leave without testing. This is the same as not drilling. If you have been drilling since July 19, this is more than enough time to drill and test.

        On such projects, the teams of geologists and drillers are usually highly international. The main specialists are rather partially only the Turks but not necessarily the rest of the norgi. There can be Russians and anyone up to the Australians.

    and who do you think is stronger than Turkey in the BV? Israel is only comparable .. but Israel's policy is mainly about not getting into them ..
    --------
    Bottom line: You are wrong - Turkey is today the regional leader of the BV, but certainly not a "superpower".

    The Republic of Turkey is a colossus with feet of clay. The states keep her on a short leash. The secular authorities of the Turkish Republic were gradually seeking independence for Turkey in the economy and industry, including the military-industrial complex, but they did not have time to do much, they would have 10-15 years more. Erdogan and the Islamists only had time to skim off the few fruits of other people's labors in time, and so he will lead Turkey into a swamp if he does not calm down. The fact that the States indulge him and play giveaway with him is just a trick and nothing more, Turkey does not have resources and will squander the few that it has.

    In your "analysis" you, besides Israel, do not take into account the most important thing, the Islamic Republic of Iran ... Take NATO away and Turkey in the person of Erdogan, this is not even a toy terrier, but a toy terrier puppy in front of Iran.
    You did not take into account the Arab countries of the BV, in them the influence of the Turks is ZERO. While the remembered Iran has at least support for the Shiite majority or minority in a number of these countries. And Israel only strengthened its position by restoring relations with a number of Arab states.

    The mistake of many who rushed to inflate the influence of Turkey in Karabakh, and they say Turkey is doing something there across the interests of Russia. The military might of Azerbaijan was built ... by Russia and Israel, and apparently not in vain. This is if about real cases.
    Turkey is more of a wedding general here and is used by more advanced, powerful and sophisticated countries to their advantage.

    Do not overestimate Turkey, outside NATO and without the States in one situation or Russia's consent in another, Turkey is not capable of anything in the Middle East or Transcaucasia. Without NATO, it is simply not capable of protecting its airspace and simply cannot afford to purchase the same Patriot air defense systems, Turkey simply cannot afford them.
    For example, small Azerbaijan, if compared in proportion, has more advanced and modern armed forces and weapons systems. Basically, Turkey, with a population of more than 10 times, has a defense budget only 3-4 times larger than that of Azerbaijan, despite the fact that it buys a lot of obsolete weapons and equipment of its own production at prices lower than that of Azerbaijan.

    Erdogan has launched many ambitious projects, but Turkey simply has no money for them. Therefore, Erdogan's ambitions will end with the fact that Turkey will not succeed where it began to achieve success, dispersing its forces on many programs. Any mistake Erdogan's and his butting with the EU or the United States will end with the fact that not only the country's economy will be paralyzed, but also the military-industrial complex, which will undoubtedly affect the army and its potential.

    And finally. In Turkey, the army played a big role, namely the army, not the military; Turkey historically is, in fact, an army-country. Erdogan methodically and consistently broke the backbone of the Turkish army, since the officer corps was previously all Kemalist = secular. He has not yet finished off the army, but he is close to it. And without an army, Turkey is nothing, Islamists and Ottomanism have already once led Turkey into a swamp of defeat and decline, Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk), his supporters and successors were able to pull Turkey out of there, but apparently another round of history was not in Turkey's favor.
