President Anastasiades Describes British Minister for Europe as 'Unacceptable'

Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades described British Minister for Europe sir Alan Duncan as "unacceptable" following the latter’s statement on May 15, before the House of Commons, that exploratory drilling for hydrocarbons should not be taking place in areas where sovereignty is “under dispute”.

Duncan, who was responding to questions by MPs, was referring to Turkey’s decision to launch drilling activities in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

Invited to comment on Duncan`s statement, Anastasiades described him as "unacceptable", noting that the British Minister had behaved in the same way in the past, and that the necessary representations will be made to the UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

Duncan "has been and continues to be unacceptable" the President said, adding that his stance does not reflect the right policy which Britain should follow given its interests in Cyprus. Moreover, Anastasiades noted the unprecedented support which Britain enjoyed during the current crucial period for her by a small country like Cyprus, which, however, has a voting right in the EU as all other member states.

It is not the first time that he behaves in such a way, the President said, referring to Duncan.
