A further escalation in east-Med will depend on Turkey’s actions

Turkey and Libya signed a maritime boundaries accord two weeks ago that sees the two countries as maritime neighbours, divides the eastern Mediterranean into two and ignores the territorial waters of some Greek islands.

Yannis Koutsomitis, the managing editor of Greek Kappa News, and Cengiz Aktar, a political scientist and a contributor to Ahval, discussed how this accord would affect the future of the region.

The two experts talked about the possible reactions of the two country’s governments, the response of the international community, the effect of the escalating tensions on Cyprus and the role of the media in both countries play.
