Video description:
While in the last video we looked at the current energy supply in Turkey, in this video we want to look at the disputes arising in the eastern Mediterranean. In particular, how unresolved conflicts between Turkey and Greece in the Aegean and Cyprus are affecting the current search for gas fields in the area.

This is very nicely and fairly presented in my opinion. The animations and everything also looks incredible. Great video.

I like how you mentioned the arrangement for India and Sri Lanka and how they settle for a median. I'm from the South Indian state of Kerala and we regularly hear news of how Sri Lankan fishermen are caught by the Indian coast guard and vice versa because they might be in the wrong zone, and this just makes me think how artificial all these borders are. Here you have ancient fishing communities who are restricted by international treaties they've never seen or participated in and having to spend nights in jail for being on the wrong side of the _water_ ....

6:00 reminds me of the long holliday car trips with my brother in the backseat.
If he did not respect the border in the middle of the car, the war was on.

You know these problems won't be solved since we're talking about Greece and Turkey. Those 2 names doesn't fit well together.

I have to admit this is the most unbiased video I have seen in YouTube on the topic. Great job at showing only the facts and letting the audience to decide and not guide them to conclusions

Part of treaty of Lausanne was that the Greeks from imbros and tenedos will stay in the islands but turkey didn't keept her promise

Both countries need a "let's work this out" attitude. But that's hard because of ancient rivalry and old hatreds.

Not just collided the Greek Frigate Lemnos rammed the new Turkish Frigate, opened a three meter hole in its the side rear, leaving it out of action.

Congratulations. The first foreign youtuber who sufficiently and accurately covers the nuances of this issue. I have seen so many "educational" youtubers get it wrong but you managed to give a perfect summary of the situation. Kudos!
