Turkey Condemns Cyprus Over Hydrocarbon Activities in Middle East

Last week, Turkey made various statements attacking Cyprus over the joint declaration adopted at the Fifth Summit of the Southern European Union Countries (Med 7) last week. Ankara says this is another so-called example of the “unfair and negative attitude upheld by certain EU member states” as the Union maintains a firm acceptance rejection for the borderline country.

The Turkish ministry accused Cyprus of supposedly abusing its EU membership and made a statement blaming Greek Cypriots and the expression of support for their unilateral hydrocarbon activities in the Middle East clearly displays “exploitation” of their EU membership.. somehow.
