Authorities in Turkey today (Monday) arrested ten former admirals following the publication of a letter from more than a hundred former naval officers warning of retirement from an international treaty regulating movement in the Bosphorus and Dardanelles.

Officials in President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government have accused them of conspiring against the regime, given the history of military coups in Turkey.



Official news agency Anadolu reported that the teen was arrested as part of an investigation opened by the Ankara prosecutor on suspicion of drafting an "agreement designed to commit a crime against state security and constitutional order."

It was further reported that four other admirals were not arrested due to their advanced age, but were asked to report to authorities within three days.



The letter was signed by 103 former admirals, in which they declared their commitment to the Montero Treaty, signed in 1936.

The Bosphorus Egyptians and the Dardanelles connect the Mediterranean to the Black Day, and retired generals fear Erdogan could retire from the treaty as he abandoned the Istanbul Convention for the Protection of Women last month.



Erdogan said today that the statement was inconsistent with freedom of expression and hinted at an intention to overthrow, but said he did not intend to abandon the 85-year-old treaty.

The Convention guarantees access to civilian vessels in peacetime, and restricts the access of warships and foreign-owned cargo ships.

In Anadolu it was reported that among the detainees was also Cham Gordniz, the mastermind behind the controversial "blue homeland" doctrine that demands control of large parts of the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea and the energy reservoirs at their bottom.

This perception is in contradiction to those of Greece and Cyprus.

The generals were arrested at their homes in Ankara, Istanbul and Kocheli, and will be questioned at the Attorney General's Office in the capital.



Senior members of the Islamist ruling party and the government have compared their statements to statements that have accompanied military coups throughout Turkey's history.

The military overthrew governments in 1960, 1971 and 1980, and in 1997 its intervention led to the resignation of an Islamist coalition.

In 2016, Erdogan survived a coup attempt, during which more than 250 people were killed.



Ankara accuses in planning the coup the exiled preacher Fathullah Golan, who was previously an ally of Erdogan.

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel, public servants, lawyers and academics have been arrested or fired in the five years since the failed putsch.

Golan, who lives in the United States, denies any connection to the events.



In addition to the retirement of the Istanbul Treaty, Erdogan's ambitious plan to build a new canal off the coast of Istanbul that would bypass the Bosphorus has ignited a debate over the Montero Convention.

An official in Turkey said the Montero Convention would not be valid for the new canal.

Without the force of the new Treaty of Montreux ditch, Turkey can allow access through the Black Sea, part of which is controlled by Russia, all types of vessels, including warships of NATO.



"The fact that retirement coach Montero was discussed as part of talks on Canal Istanbul as the authority to retire from art "In other international affairs, it is a cause for concern," the Admirals said in a letter released Saturday night. "Montero provided Turkey with the ability to remain neutral during World War II," the generals said. Of Turkey. "

Erdogan's 'crazy' channel

Armed forces in Turkey used to be a symbol of secularism in the Turkish Republic, until Erdogan and his party began to erode their influence since coming to power in 2002.

They eliminated many signs that were identified with Turkey's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and conducted extensive military rallies since 2016.



Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said the statement bore the hallmarks of a military plan to overthrow the government.

"A group of retired soldiers put themselves in an awkward and miserable position with their statements reminiscent of the days of military coups," he said.



The new canal in Istanbul is the most ambitious of Erdogan's dozens of "crazy" ventures, as he calls them.

The major projects in the country's infrastructure are among the salient features of economic growth under Erdogan's rule, although in recent years it has been difficult to stop the economic slowdown and the decline in the value of the pound.



A decade after its original formulation, the plan to dig the canal, which would actually create more Egypt in the Bosphorus, was approved only last month.

The 45-kilometer transition west of the natural shipping lane is supposed to ease traffic congestion and reduce the risk of accidents to vessels leaving Egypt.



The estimated canal cost is $ 9.5 billion, and the venture was frozen in 2018 following the pound crash. Warning of environmental disaster.
