Acting director at the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Cagatay Erciye has challenged Greece’s sovereign rights, posting a map of the Greek island of Kastellorizo with reality-twisting claims.

“Believing that a tiny island of 10km2, located 2km from Turkey and 570km away from Greece can create a 40,000km2 maritime zone in the East Mediterranean is ridiculous,” Erciyes tweeted.
