High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini warned Turkey again regarding its illegal actions in the Cypriot EEZ, during a press conference following a Foreign Affairs Council.

Mrs. Mogherini expressed serious concern on behalf of the EU over Turkey’s intention to proceed with drilling in Cyprus’ EEZ, and she referred to a March 2018 declaration in which the EU member state leaders condemned Turkeys’ “continued illegal actions in the East Mediterranean”.
