What Turkey Is Doing Against Cyprus Is Provocative, German Chancellor Says

What Turkey Is Doing Against Cyprus Is Provocative, German Chancellor Says

What is happening in the Mediterranean, both as regards Cyprus and the reunification of the island, and the issue of the exploitation of mineral resources by Turkey are issues which have a very offensive and provocative nature, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said.

 

Speaking during a Conference of Parliamentary Committees for Union Affairs of Parliaments of the European Union (COSAC) meeting on Monday, Merkel noted that "unfortunately the progress of EU - Turkey relations is not so noteworthy as I would like. We made a lot of efforts as regards the EU - Turkey relations. There is a series of obstacles and difficulties which come continuously to the forefront and so we will have to wait and see how the discussion will evolve in December, but it has not proceeded as I hoped it would."

 

The German Chancellor noted that "Turkey follows a route during the last years, which according to our understanding of values and beliefs, is subject to a lot of criticism. What is happening in the Mediterranean, both as regards Cyprus and the reunification of the island, and the issue of the exploitation of mineral resources by Turkey are issues which have a very offensive and provocative nature I would say."

 

Merkel said that "it is a good sign that Oruc Reis has returned to a Turkish port, but we still have drilling operations off the coast of Cyprus. We have said that during the European Council in December we will address this issue once again and we will think how to react to the whole situation. This will take place on December 10 and 11 as we have planned to do so."

 

The German Chancellor also said that Turkey is a country that has most probably received most refugees in the world due to the conflict in Syria and noted that "I am in favour of keep supporting Turkey as regards this issue."
