Greek Foreign Ministry denounces Turkey's attempted drilling in Cyprus’ EEZ
CNA/Adamos Zachariadis - Greece/Athens 09/07/2019 21:07

In a statement, Greek Foreign Ministry denounces the Turkish attempted drilling in the Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) as an illegal action, which violates the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus and the International Law.

“This illegal action defies, in a provocative manner, the International Law, the Law of the Sea and also the recent condemnation of Turkey by the international community. Moreover, it provokes a further escalation of tension, which threatens stability and safety in the region of the Eastern Mediterranean”, the statement notes.
