Erdogan is secretly seeking a deal with Al-Sisi to cancel EEZ agreements with Greece and Cyprus

A Turkish newspaper is calling for the restoration of Turkish-Egypt diplomatic relations after a 10-year hiatus.

The same cited article on, by Panagiotis Nastos entitled "Athens is on alert! After the victory, Erdogan seeks rapprochement with Egypt", they announce their very aggressive intentions for Egypt and personally for its president Al Sisi.

The Turkish newspaper reports that “after the elections in Turkey, Sisi called President Erdogan and congratulated him and said that they agreed to appoint a mutual ambassador. Relations between the two most influential countries in the region, which have improved after years, are already giving the signals of major changes in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Even when Turkey and Egypt broke off diplomatic relations, they did not cut off trade relations. Now, with normalization, a further expansion of economic relations is expected.

However, the impact of normalization is bound to be greater than the economy. Henry Kissinger, "There can be no war in the Middle East without Egypt, and no peace without Syria."

Egypt, which has one of the strongest armies in the world, is a major force in the balance of power in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The friendship between Egypt and Turkey has important implications for issues such as the "fair" demarcation of maritime borders in the region, the fair distribution of hydrocarbon resources, the end of attacks on Palestine, the protection of the integrity of Libya, the resistance to attacks in the Atlantic and the Eastern Mediterranean belonging to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Egypt has partially supported plans to imprison Turkey in the Gulf of Antalya by making significant mistakes in recent years.

The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) Agreement signed with Greece, although limited, was the biggest threat that could render the Turkey-Libya agreement obsolete.

To this was added the electrical interconnection of the two countries with submarine cables.

Again, Turkey was persistently excluded from the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum, which was established in Cairo to set gas prices in the region.

The tripartite mechanisms created by Greece and Cyprus were joined by the Egyptian Navy, which displayed its flag in multinational exercises with the USA and Israel.

However, restored relations with Turkey have the potential to reverse this whole process. Here begins the great fear of the Atlantic front (USA), especially in Greece.

The developments listed below that are likely to occur in the next period may radically change the balance in the Eastern Mediterranean:

1. Egypt, which has large hydrocarbon reserves, cooperates with Turkey, which has the largest fleet of seismic/drilling vessels in the world.

2. Establish a mechanism, including Turkey, to set gas prices in the Eastern Mediterranean.

3. Cancellation of the Exclusive Economic Zone agreements signed by Egypt first with Greece and then with Cyprus.

4. Recognition of the Occupied in Cyprus and signing of a new EEZ agreement, in which it will acquire a much larger maritime area than the agreement with the Greek Cypriot administration.

5. Egypt, which is the world's 10th largest arms exporter, will begin supplying Turkish defense industry products.

6. Egypt's participation in Operation Mediterranean Shield, which has been developed by Turkey since 2006.

7. Joint planning of exercises by Turkey, Egypt, Russia and China. Initiation of a new "Astana Process" with the participation of Turkey, Libya, Egypt and Russia for the integrity of Libya.

The Atlantic Front also knows that this list, which is very easy to expand, is realistic," says the Turkish expert.

Any rapprochement between Egypt and Turkey is already being closely monitored by our country, while the partial delimitation of the EEZ east of the 28th meridian and electrical interconnection, through a submarine cable between the two countries is a given and does not change at all, especially while President Al Sisi and the Egyptian Army.

Turkey, squeezed to an unimaginable point especially in the economy, is more than likely to attempt something "very bold" in the area of the non-existent "Blue Homeland" for the discovery of hydrocarbons, with the aim of bargaining for them in order to receive a loan from China and Arab countries.

Under no circumstances will Erdogan, no matter what, resort to the IMF, since it is against his ideology since 2001, when he took power.

What they owe or lack in money, the Turks will look for in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean, with the arrogance of a regional power that is capable of even going to war to impose its will.

The only way forward for Greece is to equip the Armed Forces with ballistic missiles and unmanned systems on land, air and sea, with the aim of imposing the view on the Turkish General Staff that the human and material costs in any case will be very large and terrible for the Turkish people.
