International complaints about Hagia Sophia converting to a mosque "are an assault on Turkey's sovereignty"

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan fires back at the many accusations from across Europe and the US, using the familiar language of "sovereign rights," which is a phrase directly used by Greece and Cyprus repeatedly over the last year as Turkey has violated air space and the waters around the Aegean and East Mediterranean. Erdogan's statements coincide with the convening of Turkey's Council of State which is considering the legality of changing the status of the Hagia Sophia to once again be a mosque.

France wants NATO to confront Turkey's actions

Paris accuses Ankara of shipping arms to Libya in defiance of a UN embargo as well sending in thousands of pro-Turkey Syrian militia fighters fresh from the conflict there.

France has spent part of June trying to get NATO to deal with Turkey's violations of the arms embargo and for threatening French ships on two occasions. After receiving support within NATO for a review and investigation of the matter, nothing has yet been decided or done, and France has stated this "nonchalance" is why they are pulling back their ships as part of the "sea guardian" embargo force that patrols the Mediterranean near Libya where fighting between various groups continues.
