Paris calls on Turkey to avoid illegal activities in Cyprus’ EEZ

Paris calls on Turkey to avoid illegal activities in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone.

A French Foreign Ministry announcement says that Turkey has announced new drilling operations in the eastern Mediterranean, including areas within the exclusive economic zone of the Republic of Cyprus.

In this context, France recalls its firm commitment to respect for the law of the sea and its solidarity with Cyprus, whose sovereignty must be respected, as the High Representative of the European Union, Ms Federica Mogherini, has just recalled the announcement continues.

The Foreign Ministry calls on Turkey to avoid any action that would be against the law and endanger regional stability.
