Turkey extends work in E. Med until November 29

Turkey announced on Saturday it would extend its seismic explorations of the East Mediterranean, specifically in the region disputed between Ankara and Greece, until November 29.

Ankara went on to describe Athens and Egypt's attempts to prevent the investigation as "null and void" and approved the mission of its ship Oruc Reis.

The tensions between Turkey and Greece over the maritime territories in the East Mediterranean rose back in August. Despite both Ankara and Athens stating they were ready to negotiate over the matter, the official talks are still yet to start.
