Turkey must respect international law, Commission spokesman says


The European Union has repeatedly stressed to Turkey that it must respect international law and maintain good relations with neighboring countries, a European Commission spokesman said Monday, according to a report by state-run Athens-Macedonia new agency.

The EU has urged Turkey to avoid any threat or action that could jeopardize good neighborly relations and peace in the region, the spokesman told a briefing in Brussels, according to the report.

The spokesman was reportedly responding to a journalist's question regarding the maritime boundaries agreement signed recently between Turkey and Libya’s internationally recognized government.
