Summary/Abstract: The Aegean Sea, which connects Europe, located on the eastern side of the Mediterranean and Anatolia, called Asia Minor, or the Sea of Islands, where over 3000 islands of various sizes are located, constitute an important geopolitical area. The sea of Island is largely dominated by Greece. Except for Bozcaada and Gökçeada, the majority of the islands at the entrance of the Dardanelles Strait are dominated by Greece. This situation strategically creates a situation in favor of Greece and against Turkey. Because it is seen that the provision of disarmament of the eastern Aegean islands in the Treaty of Lausanne is not valid today and it has been repeatedly violated by Greece. Greece opposes the claim that it is arming the Aegean islands, claiming that it only has detective practices and coast guard ships on the islands. There are many disputes between Turkey and Greece, the two states that have a coast on the Aegean Sea. These are: Territorial Waters and the Continental Shelf, the disarmed status of the EasternAegean Islands, the legal status of the geographical formations, the Flight Information Region (FIR) and Search and Rescue (SAR) activities. It repeatedly emphasizes that it is a part of the European Union.
