Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-001021/2019

In June 2018, the Council conclusions(1), subsequently endorsed by the European Council, underlined the EU’s continued expectation for Turkey to unequivocally commit to good neighbourly relations and to the peaceful settlement of disputes in accordance with the United Nations (UN) Charter, having recourse, if necessary, to the International Court of Justice.

In this context, the EU urged Turkey to avoid any kind of threat or action directed against a Member State, or source of friction or actions that damage good neighbourly relations and stressed the need to respect the sovereignty of all EU Member States over their territorial sea and airspace.

The European Union consistently conveys this message in its continuous dialogue with the Turkish authorities and did so most recently during the EU-Turkey Association Council of 15 March 2019 in Brussels.

The European Union is backing fully the settlement process under UN auspices and stands ready to provide full support and whatever practical assistance both parties and the UN would find most useful.
