Turkey implements vessel traffic system in occupied territories

Turkey initiates a ''Vessel Traffic Service System'' to enhance maritime monitoring and safeguard its interests in the Eastern Mediterranean


Turkey is taking steps to bolster maritime security in the occupied territories with the implementation of a "Vessel Traffic Service System." Transport Minister Abdulkadir Uraloglu confirmed that this system is part of Turkey's investment program and aims to enhance influence in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The system is designed to immediately detect and monitor ship movements in the region, providing a comprehensive overview to safeguard Turkey's interests in the "Blue Homeland." Uraloglu emphasized the system's role in preventing smuggling, responding to emergencies such as accidents and fires, and supporting efforts against oil pollution.

Traffic monitoring stations will transmit information to a central vessel traffic service center, enhancing Turkey's ability to monitor maritime transport in the area around the occupied territories. The initiative aligns with Turkey's strategic goals in the region and underscores its commitment to maritime security.
