The US State Department yesterday said in a reply statement to a question submitted to spokesman James Rubin that the agreement for the new NATO command structure was not related to any territorial dispute.
"We see this agreement as a noteworthy step forward in the effort to improve confidence in the Aegean," he stated, adding:
"The US believes that Greece and Turkey should resolve any territorial dispute through a mutually acceptable dispute resolution mechanism such as the International Court of Justice," the statement read.
