Eastern Mediterranean: tensions on the rise

Two less than friendly neighbours, Turkey and Greece, are at the core of stormy weather in the Eastern Mediterranean. Their disputes stem from geography, history and politics. The United States used to be their mutual benefactor and protector when several European countries faced a common Soviet threat, but 30 years after the end of the Cold War, the tensions between Ankara and Athens seem to outweigh their overlapping interests.

Joining it to discuss this topic we are joined from Athens Greece by Antonia Dimou, Director of Middle East and Persian Gulf Unit, Institute for Security and Defense, Analyses, Colonel (Ret.) Dr. Eran Lerman, Co-host TV7 Middle East Review, Vice President of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security and Editor in Chief of the Jerusalem Strategic Tribune, and Amir Oren TV7 analyst and host of Watchmen Talk. Host Jonathan Hessen.
