Then the history of the war of Troy and Sparta is knocking, in which Karna-Arjuna of Europe fought

Turkey Greece Tension: The tense relations between Turkey and Greece are once again reminding the history of the war of Troy and Sparta, in which Karna-Arjuna of Europe (Karna) The warriors called -Arjuna) fought. The names of those warriors were Hector and Achilles.

Interestingly, for a time Troy was only a part of Greek mythology. In Anatolia, Turkey, when excavations in the 19th century found the remains of ancient buildings and signs of war, the reality of the city of Troy was accepted. Sparta has always been considered the original city of Ancient Greece. Geographically, Sparta may have been present in the South-East Peloponnese of Greece. UNESCO has designated the Troy remains found in Anatolia, Turkey as a World Heritage Site.

What is Troy-Sparta war?

The Trojan War is also known as the Trojan War. The Trojan War got its name from the Trojan Beach of the Seas and the Trojan Horse. The Trojan Horse means that huge wooden horse that proved to be decisive in the battle of Troy. The Trojan War is believed to have taken place from 1194 to 1184 BC. When the Greeks did not get much success after almost 10 years of war and siege, they adopted a pseudo-tactic. Made a huge horse out of wood. He hid 30 skilled Greek soldiers in it and pretended to leave the battle field leaving the horse.

The people of Troy took the horse to the city as a reward for victory. At night the Greek soldiers hiding in horses came out and opened the gates for their army. This proxy method of the Greek army had worked. The army entered Troy and destroyed it and won the battle.

The abduction of a queen laid the foundation of the war

There was also a Hollywood film called Troy in 2004 about the war of Troy and Sparta, which was very much liked. The foundation of the war was laid by the kidnapping of a queen. In fact, Prince Hector of Troy goes with his younger brother Paris to negotiate a peace deal with Menelius, King of Sparta. Paris is having an affair with Helen, the wife of Menelius, who, on his return, hides Helen and brings him to the ship.

After this, Menelius, together with his elder brother Agamemnon, makes a strategy to defeat Troy. Agamemnon wanted to take possession of the Aegean Sea, so agreed to accompany his younger brother. After this, King Odysseus of Ithaca is sent to persuade Achilles. Achilles refuses to fight, but his mother persuades him, saying that he may die in battle, but his name will be remembered forever. King Priam of Troy is at first saddened by the actions of his younger son, then welcomes Helen and orders preparations for war.

Greek army marches on Troy

The Greek army captures Trojan Beach on the very first attempt. After this the Apollo temple is looted. Hector’s sister Bryceius is the priestess of the temple, Achilles takes her captive. When Agamemnon keeps Bryceius with him, Achilles becomes angry and refuses to fight the war.

Battle of Hector and Achilles

Meanwhile, Achilles’ cousin Patroclus was also involved in the war, who was also his disciple. The warrior whom Hector kills in a duel war, mistaking it for Achilles, was not actually Achilles, but his cousin Patroclus. When his brother is killed, Achilles yearns to take revenge. After this there is a long duel war between Karna-Arjuna of Europe i.e. Hector and Achilles. In the end, Achilles kills Hector. Achilles drags Hector’s body to the beach.

King Priam secretly goes to Achilles’ camp at night and asks for his son’s body for his funeral. Achilles returns the corpse, as well as sends Bryceius with the king. Achilles promises the king a ceasefire, but Agamemnon has already thought of a Trojan horse trick by then.

Turkey-Greece military clash possible next June!

Now once again the memories of Troy and Sparta can be fresh. According to Aljazeera, Greek officials say their country’s relations with Turkey are going through a very tense period and a military confrontation is possible next June in the Aegean Sea or the eastern Mediterranean, which could trigger a wider war. Is.

Greek experts believe that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will also try to create a national security crisis because it will boost his declining popularity. In August, Erdoan said he might order troops to land on the Greek islands. He said, “We may come suddenly some night, if you Greeks move too far, it will cost a lot.”

What do the Turkish-Greek authorities’ assessment say?

Retired Greek Admiral Alexandros Diakopoulos told Al Jazeera that there was no possibility of war until 2019, 2020, 2021, but cannot say so now. Dikopoulos, a former national security adviser to Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, said Turkish rhetoric was moving towards an attack.

Turkey’s top diplomat in Athens agrees on tensions between the two countries, but says the situation can be dealt with. Turkey’s ambassador Burak Ozuggergin told Al Jazeera that he had held an appropriate dialogue with his Greek allies. He also said that do not believe what is written in the newspapers. Burak Ozugerin said, “We are all trying not to have accidents. Things are not as bad as the summer of 2020, but we need to be very cautious, as things can get worse very quickly.”

The root of the dispute between Turkey-Greece

According to experts, the root of the dispute between Turkey and Greece is the Aegean Islands present in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Both countries claim their rights over the islands in this area of ​​the sea. Although the two countries are also mutual allies as members of NATO, the race for dominance over the Aegean has made both known enemies of each other.

Turkey has disputes with Greece over issues such as delimitation of islands in the Aegean Sea, expansion of territorial waters, demilitarization of islands and length of airspace, according to Hassan Gogas, former Turkish ambassador to Greece and Austria. Greece does not recognize Turkey’s authority over these islands. Turkey alleges that Greece is violating the agreement. Actually, most of the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea are close to the mainland of Turkey. These also include Castellorijo or Kos Island. According to Turkey, those islands were given to Greece on the condition of demilitarization under the Paris Peace Agreement of 1947. Greece refutes this claim of Turkey. According to Greece, Turkey’s claims are supported by neither the status quo nor international law.

Why are the Aegean Islands important to Greece?

The Aegean Islands are important to Greece because they are home to a large number of Greeks. At the same time, the Black Sea of ​​Europe, the South-Eastern border and the Middle East meet in the Aegean Sea, due to which it is also an important area for Greece politically and strategically. So far, three agreements have been signed between the two countries regarding the division of the Aegean Islands. The Lausanne Agreement was signed in 1923, followed by the Montreux Agreement in 1936 and the Paris Agreement in 1947. The purpose of the Montreux Agreement was to make partial changes to the Lausanne Treaty.

According to the BBC, Turkey also does not accede to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which mandates sovereign countries to create special economic zones (EEZs) up to 200 nautical miles (nautical miles) from their shores. was given the right. Turkey’s objection is because according to this treaty, Greece gets a greater share in the Mediterranean around the disputed island of Cyprus. Turkey says that the area of ​​​​the sea should be divided on an equal basis. On 6 August 2020, Greece and Egypt signed a Maritime Border Agreement for the Mediterranean Sea around Cyprus. After this, Turkey immediately sent one of its drilling survey ships, Oruk Reis, to the disputed area.

Apart from territorial water, this issue is also a cause of controversy.

The two main issues between Turkey and Greece are fighting over territorial waters and the sovereign right to exploit hydrocarbons in the ocean beyond territorial waters, Aljazeera reported.

Under the United Nations Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), each nation has the right to establish the width of its territorial sea up to 12 nautical miles (22 km). This means that Greece can claim direct sovereignty over more than 72 percent of the Aegean. Turkey does not argue over the rights of the islands over territorial waters, but objected to the 12 nautical miles and threatened military action if Greece used the rights under UNCLOS. Greece and Turkey both currently claim 6 nautical miles (11 km) of territorial waters in the Aegean which are 12 nautical miles from their other coasts.

Turkey does not obey the United Nations Law of the Sea

UNCLOS rules grant Greece a 500,000 sq km Special Economic Zone in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Seas. Turkey is not a signatory to UNCLOS and it disagrees with these provisions. At the same time, in 2019 Turkey signed a maritime agreement with Libya that cuts a corridor across it. The European Union declared that agreement invalid. Earlier this month Turkey signed an exploration and drilling agreement with the government of national unity in Tripoli within the corridor and indicated it would send survey ships there.

What is Turkey’s stand on going to the International Court of Justice?

Greece has suggested arbitration of the Special Economic Zone dispute at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, but has refused to discuss its territorial water rights under the threat of war. Turkey’s ambassador to Ozuggergin said Turkey really doesn’t have much sea to talk about if Greece extends its territorial waters in the Aegean, which makes going to court almost meaningless. He said that Turkey has no objection to going to court, but it is ready to go to court with all relevant issues.
