🇬🇷🇹🇷🇺🇳 Turkey's diplomatic defeat in relation to the law of the sea
A few days ago, the plenary session of the UN General Assembly adopted the annual Decision on the Oceans and the Law of the Sea, which, like every year, is agreed upon by our country, according to diplomatic sources.
They note that in the corresponding vote requested by Turkey (!), 152 countries voted in favor, and 4 countries (Colombia, Madagascar, Nigeria and Venezuela) abstained.
They note that the only country that voted against was Turkey, under the pretext that the report refers to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
The same diplomatic sources emphasize that by its position, Turkey once again demonstrates its complete isolation regarding the non-recognition of the universality of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which the overwhelming majority of the member states of the United Nations recognize.
