In what is largely being seen as a last-ditch bid to win more personal approval from his own public, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan charged late on Thursday that Greece had “attacked” the Turkish oil and gas exploration ship the Oruc Reis, and “got their first answer today.”
The Turkish leader stated that any attack on a ship which was engaged in hydrocarbon explorations in the Eastern Mediterranean would pay a “high price,” and intimated that his country had already hit back after such an incident.
In a speech in Ankara, Reuters quotes Erdogan as saying late on Thursday that “We said that if you attack our Oruc Reis you will pay a high price, and they got their first answer today.”
It has been noted that there are unconfirmed allegations floating about in Turkish media that Greece’s naval frigate the “Limnos” suffered damage after making contact with an unnamed Turkish vessel.
