The Aegean Army is conducting military drills again - Demilitarization of Asia Minor here and now

At the same time that Greece receives a new hybrid attack from the Turkey of Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan (we emphasize this from now on), and Turkish soldiers practice with anti-aircraft fire from units of the Aegean Army, Ankara demands the demilitarization of our islands.

Much has been written on this subject, with the Turks invoking the Treaty of Lausanne which they have violated many times.

The solution for Greece is one in accordance with the ancient saying "passalos passalos ekkrouetei" (the stake comes out with the stake).

To demand the demilitarization of the whole of Western Asia from the height of the cities of Afyon Karahisar and Eskisehir and behind all Turkish air, army and naval units, and the transfer of all landing forces to the Black Sea.

The same applies to the Aksaz Naval Station, which the Turks want to rapidly expand.

The main justification of the Greek demand is the clear, raw, unequivocal and indisputable military threat to Greek national territory, i.e. all the islands of the Eastern Aegean.

They will not pressure us while the Westerners will think of the absurd Turkish demands "about an alleged Greek military threat on the coast of Asia Minor", and other stories.

The entire political world in Greece must also understand that the Turks are preparing to seize and will not stop unless they "eat rifles", that is why we should act immediately.

In any other case, nothing is discussed at all.

Retired Turkish Admiral T. Yaitzi brings back the outrageous Turkish demands again, mentioning the Aegean, stressing that "now Greece is waiting for the acceptance of some things from Turkey (as if Turkey was defeated in a war and forced to sit at the table):
“This expectation is supported by the media and actors in Turkey as well as in some other states.

The "Big Idea", the ideology of turning Greece into a Byzantine Empire, which the neighboring country focused on in its relations with Turkey, is the main obstacle to good relations in every area from Cyprus to the Aegean ( Sea of Islands), up to Western Thrace.

Since the day the Greek state was created, Greece has increased its territory by taking land from the Turks at the negotiating table six times, even though it was defeated in war (1922) or did not go to war (1945).

Conscious that the "Blue Homeland" is Turkish territory, Turkey has not an inch of land and not a drop of water to give to Greece for the seventh time.
Therefore, we should underline that it is not the problems that prevent the development of good relations between Turkey and Greece, but the demands of Greece.

However, Turkey has no demand from Greece other than "to respect the agreements made".

In other words, Turkey only expects Greece to comply with the provisions of the Lausanne Peace Accords of 1923 and Paris of 1947 and thus aims to establish and maintain relations with Greece on the basis of peace and friendship within the framework of alliances neighborhood and NATO.

In this context, no one should expect Turkey to accept the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to which Turkey is not a signatory, on the status of the Aegean, instead of the 1923 Lausanne Peace Treaty, which determined the balances, which both states sign.

The main international regulation that determines the legal status of the (Aegean) islands between Turkey and Greece is the Lausanne Peace Treaty of 1923.

According to Lausanne, while its territorial waters were 3 miles, Greece broke this regime by increasing its territorial waters to 6 miles in 1936.

Turkey cannot tolerate a further deterioration of this regime. Greece also claims 152 Island Groups, Islands and Islets (EGAYDAAK) whose sovereignty has not been transferred to it by the Treaty of Lausanne and Paris.

This issue of sovereignty should definitely be discussed. Similarly, the abandonment of the airspace claims of 10 miles from Greece when its territorial waters were 6 miles and the Civil Regime", he emphasizes among many others.

We will not compromise and we must not discuss any of these insanities demanded by the Turk, who regards us as defeated, (1922-1974), and therefore as obligees who must comply with Turkish conditions.

It is estimated that a Greek-Turkish military conflict would solve the Aegean issue in the most effective way, a good one, in order to end the arrogant and insane Islamist and non-Turkish Officials.
