CNA - Maria Koniotou - CYPRUS/Nicosia 20/01/2020 21:05

All necessary diplomatic actions and representations have been undertaken to protest the new illegal, piracy intervention of Turkey in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone, Government Spokesman Kyriacos Koushos has told the Cyprus News Agency (CNA) commenting on Ankara’s announced attempt to carry a new illegal drilling in the southern EEZ/continental shelf of Cyprus, inside exploration block 8.
“Turkey turns out to be a pirate state in the Eastern Mediterranean. Despite the repetitive calls of the international community and particularly of the EU to immediately terminate its illegal activities it continues to violate the Cypriot EEZ and continental shelf,” Koushos noted.
