CNA - Cyprus/NICOSIA 06/10/2019 14:14


The French and Italian delegations taking part in the 18th Autumn Meeting of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, in Marrakesh, issued on Saturday a joint statement condemning Turkey`s illegal actions in the Republic of Cyprus` Exclusive Economic Zone, following meetings they had with Cypriot parliamentarian and head of delegation Irene Charalambides.

US Senator Roger Wicker said Turkey`s activities are unacceptable, adding that the US will continue to take diplomatic steps to ensure the operations legal activities, a Cyprus Parliament press release says.

The joint statement, circulated during a meeting of the standing committee of the assembly, says the two delegations "share Cyprus` serious concerns" on the escalation of tensions in its EEZ and the presence of Turkish navy vessels in the region.
