New security doctrine from Turkey: “Defense starts from the sea, we will pay attention there now”

Turkey will introduce a new doctrine, as Erdogan’s “hares” wrote an article in Turkish media.


Turkey’s new security doctrine: Defense starts from the sea, says professor and Erdogan adviser Dr. Süleyman Kızıltoprak, who describes his new security doctrine as “Turkey’s defense starts from the seas.”

“Arming the islands 2km and 10km off the Turkish coast with weapons is not rational behavior and is against the Lausanne Accords of 1923 and Paris of 1947.” said Professor Dr. Süleyman Kızıltoprak.

“The United States, which has long played the role of the only dominant power in the international system by donating 1,200 battleships to Greece and threatening Turkey’s sovereign rights, does not want a new actor in the maritime areas. That’s why Greece got involved.

Turkey’s defense starts from the seas. The arming of the islands near the Turkish coast, for whatever reason, are malicious approaches that threaten the security of Anatolia and Thrace.

Greece, landed at Smyrna on May 15, 1919, poured into the sea from Smyrna on September 9, 1922.

With the support of US President W. Wilson and the British, Greece, which attempted to invade Anatolia, survived the worst defeat in its history.

If Greece does not want to repeat the same mistakes today, it is time to remember history.”

“Consisting of two peninsulas, Turkey’s inland coasts are surrounded by seas. The Marmaras, which connects Thrace with the Anatolian peninsula, is an inland sea. It connects the Sea of ​​Marmara, the Black Sea, the Sea of ​​Islands (Aegean) and the Mediterranean.”

The powers that started the First World War and succeeded in keeping Turkey away from the oil fields began to prevent the Turks from exercising their rights to maritime jurisdictions once they saw the importance of the seas. According to international maritime law, the territorial waters, continental shelf and exclusive economic zone (EEZ) borders in the seas surrounding Turkey are homeland borders. The border that extends from these shores to the EEZ is also called the blue homeland. Since the sea border is connected to the air border, the concept of a blue homeland makes sense because of the color blue, which is the dominant color in both regions.

Emphasizing that the Blue Motherland is also the sea part of the motherland, Kızıltoprak said, “The size of the sea motherland is 462 thousand square kilometers. It is about three-fifths of the land of 783 thousand square kilometers. In other words, the Turkish surface is 1 million 245 thousand square kilometers.

When the Turkish conquests began, Byzantium was not the dominant power at sea.

From this point of view, the existence of Greece on the islands dates back to 1830, when it became independent.

The main problems that arise:

A: Islands, islets and rocks whose sovereignty is not transferred,

B: Gray zones of uncertain relationship,

C: The disarmament of Greece, the arming of the islands listed in various treaties,

D: Greece’s attempt to expand the area of ​​its territorial waters

Q: On the issue of the continental shelf, Greece also makes similar claims about the airspace area and the FIR line.”
