Eastern Mediterranean Conflict where complicated diplomatic intervention is required

Sunday, September 13, 2020

SCHOLARS’ CIRCLE - The Eastern Mediterranean has long been a powder keg for potential conflict, particularly between Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus. A more aggressive Turkish push in the region to drill for oil and natural gas has raised the stakes. On today’s show we explore the potential for conflict and the impact of this drilling has on climate change initiatives in Europe.

The Daily Roundup

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Tensions remain at an all time high in the Eastern Mediterranean as Turkey continues its provocations, challenging Greece’s maritime rights in the region. In the meantime, Germany is attempting a diplomatic mediation, while EU ministers are meeting to discuss possible sanctions against Turkey. Dr. Aristotle Tziampiris joins us from Athens today with his analysis.
