Imia Islets are Greek – Turkish MTA Agrees

In 1996 Greece and Turkey nearly went to war over the two Islets in the Aegean known as Imia or Limnia (Kardak in Turkish). The website of the Turkish Directorate of Mineral Research & Exploration (website) is still showing a map with the correct and established borders as Turkey herself has recognised. The map can be found here.

The Imia Islets cannot be seen on the map but are located to the west of the depicted border and to the right of Kalolimnos (Prassole) and above Pserimons (Kappari).The Imia Islets are located at 37º02’N – 27º08’E.
