TAGS: Turkey, Defense

Turkish authorities Friday issued navigational telexes reserving an area in the central Aegean between the islands of Psarra, Skyros and Evia for naval exercises planned for a large part of next month.

Ahead of that, the Turkish Navy is to start a major exercise code-named Denizkurdu (Seawolf), which Greek authorities will also be monitoring closely.

Turkish authorities issued a series of notices to airmen as well, reserving areas close to the Greek islands of Farmakonisi, Agathonisi and Imia.
