Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that Turkey had been applying the Montreux Convention fastidiously and neutrally for 72 years.
Releasing a statement, the Ministry denied a news report claiming that the calculation of tonnage envisaged in the Convention was miscounted.
"This news report is totally baseless. Turkey has been applying the Montreux Convention, which was signed on July 20th, 1936, fastidiously and neutrally for 72 years. It has also received worldwide acceptance," the Ministry said.
