CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 24/06/2019 11:31


Minister of Defence, Savvas Angelides, met on Monday with his British counterpart, Penny Mordaunt, and expressed the Cyprus government’s satisfaction over the unanimous decision of the European Council to include in its conclusions references to the illegal Turkish activities in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone.
 
According to a press release, Angelides had the opportunity to brief Mordaunt on the illegal and aggressive actions of Turkey in the Republic of Cyprus’ EEZ, which violate Cyprus’ sovereign rights, international and European law, and the Law of the Sea, and at the same time put the stability of the whole region of the Eastern Mediterranean at risk.
 
Furthermore, the two Ministers discussed bilateral cooperation and exchanged views on ways to enhance it, based on the Memorandum of Cooperation signed recently.
