CNA - Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 10/07/2019 18:03


European Council President Donald Tusk warned today Turkey on its continued escalation, with an EU responce in full solidarity with Cyprus, due to the illegal drilling activities in the EEZ.

More specifically, President Tusk stated : "despite our best intentions to keep good neighbourly relations with Turkey, its continued escalation and challenge to the sovereignty of our Member State Cyprus will inevitably lead the EU to respond in full solidarity as agreed by the European Council."
