Greece’s attempt to double its territorial waters in the Ionian Sea from 6 to 12 nautical mileswould be considered a “cause for war” for Turkey, said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

The two neighboring NATO members have been arguing in recent days over Turkey’s plans to explore the Eastern Mediterranean, which is believed to be rich in oil and gas.

Çavuşoğlu’s warnings came after Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced his government was planning to submit a bill to double Greece’s territorial waters in the Ionian Sea facing Italy.
