Responding to a question from ND MEP Manolis Kefalogiannis Borrell underlined that “Turkey must also avoid threats and actions that harm good neighbourly relations, and respect the sovereignty of all EU Member States over their territorial waters and airspace, as well as all their sovereign rights, including the right to explore and exploit natural resources in accordance with EU and international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.”
