Anger in Turkey as Britannica presents the Aegean islands in Greek

Britannica

The map of Greece in the Britannica encyclopedia, which shows the Aegean islands as Greek territory per international law and recognition, provoked the reaction of the "Blue Homeland" theorist, retired admiral Cihat Yaycı, who called on his nationalist compatriots to react.

"Britannica shows the entire 'Sea of ​​Islands' as Greek territory," comments a post by the Turkish Maritime and Global Center for Strategic Studies, which Yaycı directs, calling the map used by the internationally renowned encyclopedia - in its electronic version - a "scandal".

Yaycı, the former chief of the Turkish Naval Forces General Staff, calls on his compatriots to react en masse by contacting the company's headquarters in Chicago to express their protest because the Aegean islands appear as part of Greece on this particular map.
