Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement on Turkey's decision to carry out illegal drilling in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Republic of Cyprus

Monday, 06 May 2019

We condemn Turkey’s decision to carry out illegal drilling in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Republic of Cyprus.

We call on Turkey to immediately cease its illegal activities, to respect the inalienable rights of the sovereign Republic of Cyprus exercised in the interests of all Cypriot people, to desist from further actions that undermine stability in the region, and the re-opening of talks for a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

We welcome the Republic of Cyprus’s calm and composed stance, which reaffirms its role as a pillar of stability and a reliable partner in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Greece recalls the content of the Conclusions of the March 2018 meeting of the European Council and the subsequent relevant positions of the EU, and remains in constant communication and coordination with the Republic of Cyprus, as well as its EU partners and allies with regard to the next appropriate actions.
