The main reason for the war: Turks begin oil exploration off the coast of Libya


The true purpose of the Turkish invasion of Libya, it seems, is beginning to be confirmed in practice. In accordance with the agreement between Ankara and the Government of National Accord, Turkey begins oil exploration in the Eastern Mediterranean off the coast of Libya, the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah writes.


On May 29, 2020, Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Denmez announced that these works could begin within 3-4 months. He said this, speaking at the ceremony of sending the drilling vessel Fatih (Fatih). He clarified that Turkish Petroleum (TPAO) has already filed a PNS application and will begin work on licensed areas immediately after obtaining permission. In total, Turkey has three such drilling vessels.

Recall that on November 27, 2019, Ankara and the PNS signed two separate agreements. The first covers the militarytechnical cooperation, and the second is intended to secure for Turkey the right to carry out exploration and drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean, in the waters of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Thus, the PNS, being the official authority in Libya, recognizes both the Republic itself and its borders.

Ankara needed such a treaty in order to somehow legitimize its actions in the waters of the island, because Northern Cyprus has remained unrecognized by anyone for more than 45 years.

    Without any sarcasm. Looking at the map, I can’t understand what Libya has to do with Cyprus. Can anyone explain?

      This explains the last paragraph in the material.

        So what? Well, Libya recognized the Republic of Northern Cyprus. Does it change anything?
        For two years now, Turkey (at least) has been conducting exploration in the waters of northern Cyprus. Accompanied by warships.
        Suppose they began to extract gas or oil there. And the EU countries will say "Once Libya has recognized, we can import this gas." So what?
        ------
        But anyway, thanks. I understand that Turkey needed recognition by anyone.

          Well, yes, a small break will not hurt ... South Ossetia also recognized Crimea as Russian ... In fact, a pure formality.

    “Should everything be understood in such a way that ... what ... what ... if suddenly by some miracle ... - the loser and slobber Haftar will suddenly triumph over the PNS ... - and overthrow him; then the whole legitimacy of the mentioned agreement of November 27, 2019 between Ankara and the PNS ... - will melt ... like smoke ???

    It turns out that France, England, the USA and Italy dragged chestnuts out of the fire for Turkey when they bombed Libya in 2011 and drove it into the Stone Age? Now they are all in shit, after an avalanche of immigrants from Africa to the EU, and Turkey - in a white coat! NATO - suckers get?

    It’s clear with Turkey. What does Russia want in Libya?
