Cyprus’ energy programme in line with international legitimacy
CNA - Cyprus/NICOSIA 15/05/2018 17:40


The Republic of Cyprus’ energy programme is in line with international legitimacy and the sovereign rights of an UN and EU member state, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Tuesday.

Prodromou had been asked by journalists to comment on references made by Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan who had claimed that the eastern Mediterranean region will face a sustained security threat if Cyprus continues its operations there.

The Spokesman pointed out that this is confirmed by the support Cyprus enjoys from great powers and he referred to State Department statements and the Russian government’s statements that they support the Republic of Cyprus’ sovereign rights as well as the clear position taken by the European Council.
