- Turkey Confirms 2 US Warships To Enter Black Sea As Ukraine Posturing Grows
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
Turkey’s foreign ministry on Friday confirmed that it’s granted permission for US warships to use the Bosporus and Dardanelles straits to enter the Black Sea at a moment tensions with Russia over Ukraine are spiraling higher with tit-for-tat threats. Given it revealed the initial notification was two weeks ago, a pair of American warships are expected imminently to enter the Black Sea.
The foreign ministry said in a statement while referencing the treaty that regulates passage through the straits: “A notice was sent to us 15 days ago via diplomatic channels that two U.S. warships would pass to the Black Sea in line with the Montreux Convention. The ships will remain in the Black Sea until May 4.“
