Turkey Dissatisfied with Cyprus Decision to Develop a Hydrocarbon Field

By in

The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted strongly against the decision of Cyprus to invite oil companies for the development of a hydrocarbon field on the island’s territory.

Turkey stated that the decision of the Greek Cypriot government is further evidence of the inequality of the two sides in making decisions regarding the island’s joint management and then ultimately being ignored by Cyprus.

Ankara expressed anger after the 2001 agreement on establishing the continental shelf was reached and the actions of Cyprus violated its subsequent conditions.
