Turkey has signed the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) with the legitimate government of Libya recognized by UN. This development brought the Turkish Navy’s future capabilities into the agenda. This deal is a meaningful sign that you should have other trump cards ready to use. The importance of the capabilities of Turkey’s LHD (Landing Helicopter Dock) comes into light in this context.
Turkey’s agreement with Libya deeply affects the share for energy resources in the eastern Mediterranean. Turkey ignores the morale of both countries broke down in the agreement as well as policies in the region. The unilateral claim of Greece and the Greek Cypriot Administration towards many points around the island of Cyprus had not received any reaction from the EU, for example.
