New threats against Cyprus

 

24 September 2018

Turkey warned Greece and Cyprus by announcing that it will protect its rights by any means necessary during Thursday’s National Security Council chaired by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The council discussed issues regarding the latest developments in the Aegean and the Mediterranean and the communique issued says that the interests and rights of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus will be defended by all means.

Ankara is increasing pressures on Cyprus only days before the UN General Assembly resumed talks on the Cyprus issue and before the autumn explorations and drilling scheduled by ExxonMobil and French Total in the Republic of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone.

Turkish Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said that the Fatih drilling ship will drill in the eastern Mediterranean in the coming months. "Our presence in the seas will be strengthened with Barbaros, Oruc Reis, and Fatih," Domnez said.

The energy minister said that in the last 16 months Ankara has invested $10 billion for exploration and production of hydrocarbons. He also underlined that Turkey will not allow the exploitation of the hydrocarbons of Cyprus without the Turkish Cypriots benefiting from it.
