The sea between Greece and Turkey is always a discussion subject for both countries. Those islands have important location for both countries especially for Turkey. They are so close that some of them are ahead to Turkish coasts.
Aegean Sea is the name that Greeks use. It is based on mythological Greek prince. Turkish side named here as “Sea of Islands” till the second half of 20th century. Turkey accepted to use Aegean Sea for the global world.
It isn’t wrong even we name here “Sea of Islands”.
