The USA asked Turkey to Block The Bosphorus Strait to Russian Warships
The United States put their “ally” Turkey in a bad spot this last week when they reportedly asked Turkey to block the Bosphorus strait to Russian warships! This would violate a long standing Montreux Convention to which Turkey is the administrator. This was another attempt by the United States to force Russia into a making retaliatory moves.
As you should be able to see by now it is the United States and NATO that are fueling the fires of war.
The Montreux Convention was adopted in 1936 and guarantees the freedom of passage through the straits for merchant ships of all countries; both in peacetime and in wartime. However, the rules of passage of warships are different for the Black Sea states and others. For the warships of the non-Black Sea powers, significant restrictions on class and duration of stay have been introduced. Prior notice MUST BE GIVEN for warships to pass through the strait!
Here is more from avia.pro.
The United States tried to achieve a blockade of Russian warships in the Black Sea through negotiations with Turkey to block the Bosphorus. Moreover, the United States offered Turkey to revise some of the provisions of the Montreux Convention in order to increase the possibilities for the presence of the NATO and US fleets in the waters of the Black Sea. However, despite the fact that Turkey is a NATO country, Ankara resolutely refused to make such decisions, emphasizing that the Montreux Convention is not subject to revision.
“We made it clear to our allies that they should not even think about anything other than the Montreux Convention. We do not approve of restrictive measures against Russia. However, we do not want the US and our allies to block us with possible responses that include restrictive measures. The Black Sea is not included in the NATO response. There is nothing that could contradict the Montreux Convention ,” Turkish journalist Bedrettin Belyukbashi reports.
Turkey stressed that Ankara could indeed close the Bosphorus, however, only under other conditions, for example, when a state of emergency is declared in the country, Turkey is involved in hostilities, etc.
