Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding The Greek Foreign Ministry’s Statement On Kardak Rocks , 02.12.2016

QA-45, 2 December 2016

Turkey’s position on her sovereignty over Kardak Rocks is well known by the international community since 1996. There is no change in our policy in this regard. 

Minister Çavuşoğlu has reiterated this point in his response to a written parliamentary question. 

We are perplexed as to why our neighbour Greece has issued a statement as if they heard our established position for the first time.
