Washington Urges Turkey To Stop Operations In Cyprus’ EEZ

Washington Urges Turkey To Stop Operations In Cyprus’ EEZ

The US State Department has urged Turkey once again to immediately terminate its operations within the exclusive economic zone of the Republic of Cyprus.
                                   

                       
Replying to a question of Hellas Journal website, a State Department spokesperson described the Turkish action as provocative, noting that they escalate tension in the region.


 
It said the US was concerned about Turkey’s intentions to explore for hydrocarbons within Cyprus’ sea area, noting that these provocative actions increase tension in the region.
 


We urge the Turkish authorities to terminate these operations, the spokesperson said.

 

Turkey has ignored numerous UN resolutions calling for the withdrawal of the Turkish troops and respect of the integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus.

 

Turkish drill ship “Yavuz” arrived last April in the exclusive economic zone (ΕΕΖ) of Cyprus, after Ankara announced another attempt to drill a well in blocks licensed to European companies. This is the 6th time Turkey attempts to drill within the EEZ and continental shelf of the Republic of Cyprus, this time in an area that covers part of exploration blocks 6 and 7, which have been licensed to ENI and TOTAL.

 

The Republic of Cyprus has taken steps on various levels in relation to the new Turkish provocations concerning the dispatch of the exploration vessel Barbaros in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

 

In a statement on May 15, EU Foreign Ministers deplored the fact that Turkey has not yet responded to EU calls to cease such activities and reiterated their call on Ankara to show restraint, refrain from such actions, and respect the sovereignty and sovereign rights of Cyprus, in accordance with international law. EU Foreign Ministers also reaffirmed previous Council and European Council conclusions, notably those of June 2019 and October 2019 on Turkey’s continued illegal activities in the Eastern Mediterranean.
