On Wednesday morning, the International newspapers touched upon the tension between Greece and Turkey, in addition to warnings of violence on the far right.
Greek Ekathimerini: Athens should go to the International Court of Justice for its tensions with Turkey
The international newspapers issued this morning dealt with several topics, including the Turkish-Greek dispute. In this context, the Greek newspaper Ekathimerini said: "Greece should consider resorting to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague to seek asylum against Turkey, because resolving issues between Ankara Greece at the bilateral level seems impossible. "
Turkey's diplomatic position towards Greece, along with the maritime border agreement between Ankara and Tripoli, and the endeavor to prevent the Greek islands from claiming a continental shelf and an exclusive economic zone (EEZ), left the Greek diplomatic establishment with few options.
Relations between Turkey and Greece have been strained since Turkey stepped up its efforts to exploit hydrocarbon reserves in the eastern Mediterranean, by sending two ships to waters off Cyprus.
Greece also maintains strong objections to a maritime agreement signed between Ankara and the Libyan government in Tripoli, which makes Turkey and Libya two maritime neighbors, and ignores some Greek regional regions including Crete.
Athens must reach an arbitration agreement that will only transfer the dispute relating to the continental shelf and EEZ to The Hague, and the alternative solution to the impasse in negotiations on the arbitration agreement is for Greece to sign its own agreement with Libya.
The Washington Post: Interpol official warns of sharp rise in far-right violence
The Washington Post, in turn, said: "INTERPOL's Secretary-General, Jurgen Stock, spoke of the dramatic rise in far-right violence, and the use of social media as an incubator for the ideas of the extreme right, and said incidents should be treated in the same way as Islamic extremism.
Stoke, a German, has served in office since 2014, and we met him during the Munich security conference earlier this month and again last week after a gunman - apparently fueling far-right views and conspiracy theories - was killed by nine people in the German city of Hanau.
Defense Post: US air strike kills al-Shabaab leader involved in Manda Bay attack
The Defense Post newspaper quoted the US command in Africa as saying: an air strike in southern Somalia killed a senior al-Shabab official believed to have been involved in planning a January attack on a Kenyan air base that killed three American elements.
"The post-strike assessments confirm that the terrorists who were killed in air strikes on February 22 were linked to the attack on Manda Bay," the US Africa Command said on Tuesday, February 25.
The US command did not mention the names of the dead, but described the man as a "senior leader in al-Shabab, who was responsible for planning and directing terrorist operations on the Kenyan border region, including the recent attack on Simba camp, at Manda Bay air base in Kenya."
The press release added that the terrorist's wife, who was also killed in the raid, "was an activist in al-Shabab responsible for facilitating a wide range of terrorist activities."
