Re­spond­ing to re­cent com­ments by na­tion­al­ist Turk­ish politi­cians ques­tion­ing Greece’s sovereignty of some Aegean is­lands, a Turk­ish For­eign Min­istry spokesper­son said yes­ter­day that rap­proche­ment in the Aegean should not be un­der­mined. “We pre­serve the nec­es­sary will and de­ter­mi­na­tion for the so­lu­tion of all the prob­lems in the Aegean in a com­pre­hen­sive and last­ing way that is based on mu­tual con­sent and com­mon in­ter­ests of both par­ties and through peace­ful meth­ods,” Sel­cuk Unal said, adding that Tur­key wanted the re­gion to be­come “an area of peace, friend­ship and co­op­er­a­tion.” Unal stressed that un­til bi­lat­eral dis­putes in the Aegean are re­solved, “it is of great im­por­tance for both par­ties to re­frain from uni­lat­eral ef­forts that may en­dan­ger peace and sta­bil­ity in the re­gion and dam­age the pos­i­tive at­mos­phere be­tween them.”
