Cyprus is taking all necessary diplomatic steps in a calm manner in order to avoid an escalation, Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has said. 

He was referring to Turkey’s provocative actions in Cyprus’ EEZ during the last few days when Turkish navy vessels stopped ENI’s Saipem 12000 vessel which was on its way to a location within Block 3 of Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone, because there would be military activities in the destination.

The Cyprus President, who was addressing a church service in honour of Saint Maroun in Nicosia, said that “it is with sorrow that we are observing Turkey’s actions in the last hours.
