'I am a Cypriot' Juncker says referring to Turkey's illegal activities
CNA Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 09/10/2019 21:17

Commission President Jean Claude Juncker called on Turkey on Wednesday "to act with restraint and stop its operations immediately", referring to the intervention in Syria, while reiterating that "I am a Cypriot", referring to the illegal Turkish drilling operations in Cyprus' Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

Addressing the plenary of the European Parliament meeting in Brussels, Juncker made it clear that "if the plan ( of Turkey in North Syria) involves the creation of a so-called safe zone, do not expect the EU to pay anything for it."

Juncker noted that "the EU`s relations with Turkey are as complex and important as ever".
