Cyprus is taking appropriate action against Turkey’s attempt to mislead the international community, spokesman says

The Republic of Cyprus is taking appropriate action in response to Turkey’s attempt to mislead the international community by justifying its illegal actions in the sea, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Saturday in a written statement concerning allegations in a letter sent by Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu to the EU and the permanent members of the UN Security Council about Turkey’s drilling activities in the eastern Mediterranean.

“At this time Turkey acts contrary to international law and violates the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Republic of Cyprus, while the claim that it intervenes within the Turkish continental shelf, besides being baseless, also proves that Turkey does not act on behalf of Turkish Cypriots as it claims, but at the expense of Cyprus in general”, said Prodromou.
