CNA - Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 13/11/2019 23:06



High Representative Federica Mogherini expressed EU’s full solidarity with Cyprus, during her closing statement in the European Parliament plenary discussing Turkey`s illegal drilling in the Cyprus EEZ.

Solving the Cyprus issue within the UN framework "would be the game changer, not only for the drilling activities but also for Cyprus itself and the European Union and the entire region", she also noted, , stressing that the illegal drilling is an act going the opposite direction and explaining that sanction is an instrument to help the United Nations.

"Thank you all for having expressed collectively what to me is the most important element, which is this full solidarity with one of our Member States - with Cyprus - and this unity is needed because it is constantly tested form the outside but also from the inside", the High Representative stated.
