Elder Paisios: "When you hear about 12 miles... get ready"

"When, you hear on TV about extending the miles (or Greece's territorial waters) from 6 to 12 miles, then war will follow." This is what Elder Paisios told pilgrims when they asked him over 15 years ago what to expect in the future with neighboring Turkey. You will recall that in 1996 when people heard the phrase extension of territorial waters from six to 12 miles we were suddenly hit with the Imia crisis. Recently we heard the term again, but this time from the mouth of Turkish Foreign Minister A. Davutoglu. What should we expect now?

Indeed the Elder warned us to "prepare". So prophesies and predictions aside, the question remains, is Greece ready for whatever challenge comes from the east if it does extend its territorial waters? This we do cannot answer, but what we do know for a fact is that the Greek government is going to declare its EEZ by the end of 2012.

This was revealed in a state radio interview by geopolitical analyst and EEZ expert Nikos Lygeros.

Lygeros claims that Turkey will use many types of propaganda and dilemmas in order to fight this from occurring. He says that in accordance to international laws and treaties, Greece will and must delineate its territorial waters and proclaim its EEZ, while he specifically reveals that this will happen by the end of 2012.  (Below is the radio interview)
