EP urges Turkey to ease tensions in Mediterranean

The European Parliament approved on Thursday a resolution on tensions with Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

The resolution demands that Turkey must ease tensions over natural resource exploration in the disputed waters and warns of possible sanctions.

Tensions have been brewing since Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the continuation of drilling operations in early August. Consequently, the international community fiercely criticized the actions of the Turkish government and insisted that the conflict is solved through dialogue.
