It takes some time to decide EU measures against Turkey for its actions in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Cyprus, the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades said on Monday.

The Presidenmt was asked to comment on the latest decision of the European Council concerning Turkey, which expressed recently “serious concerns over Turkey`s current illegal drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean” and endorsed an invitation to the Commission and the European External Action Service (EEAS) “to submit options for appropriate measures without delay, including targeted measures.” The reference for targeted measures was not included in the draft conclusions adopted by the General Affairs Council prior to the Summit.
