About our Turkish Straits news
Latest news updates concerning the Turkish Straits, a set of waterways in northwestern Turkey that connect the Black Sea to the Aegean Sea. They consist of the Sea of Marmara, the Dardanelles, and the Bosporus. The Bosporus is the most famous of the three, as it runs through Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey.
The Turkish Straits are an important shipping route, as they provide a shortcut between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. They are also an important source of fresh water for the Black Sea. Turkey controls the Straits, and has the right to regulate maritime traffic through them. This has often led to tension with other countries, especially Russia.
