EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN:

  • Turkey has told Israel, Greece and the European Union to seek its permission before assuming work on a projected undersea power cable in disputed eastern Mediterranean waters. Cyprus, Israel and Greece last week signed an initial agreement on laying the world’s longest undersea power cable linking their electricity grids. But the proposed link is set to run through contested waters at the centre of last year’s tensions between Turkey and Greece linked to Ankara’s search for natural gas.

EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN:

  • Saudi Arabia dashed Turkey’s hopes of a quick reconciliation that would overcome differences with Ankara, after Saudi F-15C fighters arrived on the island of Crete with their ground crews to participate in a training exercise with Greece in the Eastern Mediterranean, in a move that seems to have received Egyptian support. The arrival of Saudi fighters at Souda air base in Crete to take part in the “Ain al-Saqr 1” exercise increases French-Greek-Egyptian pressures on Turkey to check its expansion in the Eastern Mediterranean.
