Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) is legally and politically protected, Government Spokesman Kyriacos Koushos said on Thursday, while calling for national unity in order to counter Turkey’s expansionist policy.
Speaking to CNA, Koushos also said that the actions of Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides are in line with the instructions of the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, while the Minister enjoys the President’s full confidence.
Asked about Thursday’s statements in Greek state television regarding the information Turkey seems to possess on EEZ block 8, the Spokesman said that he incorrectly said that Turkey intercepted the information.
