August 13, 2020

France will boost its military presence in the eastern Mediterranean amid an escalating standoff between Greece and Turkey over oil and gas exploration in disputed waters.

In a twitter, French President Emmanuel Macron called the situation in the eastern Mediterranean and urged Turkey to stop its "unilateral" prospecting and "allow a peaceful dialogue" between the neighbouring NATO members.
