Re: Turkey V Cyprus.

Cyprus offshore: Turkey turns up the heat

The prospects for monetising natural gas discovered off Cyprus have risen, but so has the geopolitical temperature

The Cyprus authorities can point to two positive aspects of the current offshore gas scene—and one negative one in the form of Turkey's moves to assert its authority in Cypriot waters. Tension is rising.


On the plus side for Cyprus, leading international oil companies (IOCs)—Eni, ExxonMobil, Total—are confident of finding more reserves; and a deal has been done that could eventually see Cypriot gas being monetised.

In one of the latest public statements on the issue, the TRNC president Mustafa Afkinci said the republic's government had refused the idea of a joint commission to cooperate on the search for gas. Instead, it had "continued with unilateral action.

We have told them ‘if this is done this way, you leave no choice to Turkish Cyprus and Turkey but to act in the same way'." He added that the Cypriot government had no right to define the sovereignty of the sea off the island without consulting Turkish Cypriots.

Re: Turkey V Cyprus.

Can't see the Greek Cypriots or the Greeks being happy with the new maritime shelf agreement between Turkey and Libya ...... Should be brought up at the NATO meeting ... between the two Nato members Turkey and Greece ...as it is a problem for the alliance....

Re: Turkey V Cyprus.

Turkish and Greek leaders to meet in London after Turkey’s deal with Libya.

Turkish and Greek leaders will meet in London to discuss the situation in the eastern Mediterranean, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Dec. 3.

The meeting came on the heels of a recent deal between Turkey and Libya for maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean Sea.

“Yesterday, I have learned that the Greek prime minister (Kyriakos Mitsotakis) asked for a meeting with us in London. There, we will discuss all of these issues,” Erdoğan said, speaking before his departure to the NATO Summit in London.

Greece might take some steps following Turkey’s deal with Libya, but Turkey keeps its right to take steps as well, Erdoğan stated. “With regards to this issue, most probably Libya can even withdraw its ambassador,” the president noted.

Whatever Greece, Egypt and Greek Cyprus steps up in retaliation to Turkey’s move, Ankara will pursue its determination to protect its sovereign rights in the eastern Mediterranean, he said.

“Whatever Greece, Egypt and Greek Cyprus do will not affect the step we have taken with Libya. We have already sealed our agreement with Libya.”

Now, the memorandum of understanding signed with Libya will be approved by the Turkish Parliament and will enter in force.

On Nov. 27, “The Security and Military Cooperation” and “Restriction of Marine Jurisdictions” agreements were signed when President Erdoğan met with Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the Tripoli-based government which Ankara is backing against a rival military force based in eastern Libya.

The memorandum between Turkey and Libya determines the portion of Turkey’s maritime jurisdictions in the region.
Libya’s neighbor, Egypt, dismissed the deal as “illegal,” and Greece said any such accord would be geographically absurd because it ignored the presence of the Greek island of Crete between the coasts of Turkey and Libya.

Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis said he will raise the recently inked memorandum of understanding between Turkey and Libya during the NATO Summit.

The mere presence of the Meis Island -- or, Kastellorizo -- across the Turkish mainland could not have any effect on Ankara’s maritime territories contrary to the arguments of Greece and the Greek Cypriots, according to Turkey’s argument.

“The islands which lie on the opposite side of the median line between two mainlands cannot create maritime jurisdiction areas beyond their territorial waters and that the length and direction of the coasts should be taken into account in delineating maritime jurisdiction areas,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said on Dec. 1 in a written statement.

Re: Turkey V Cyprus.

Greece to ask for NATO support over Turkish-Libyan military agreement


Greece will seek support from NATO at an alliance summit in London this week following a military deal signed by Turkey and Libya's UN-recognised government, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Sunday.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said an alliance "cannot remain indifferent when one of its members openly violates international law".

ATHENS: Greece will seek support from NATO at an alliance summit in London this week following a military deal signed by Turkey and Libya's UN-recognised government, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Sunday (Dec 1).

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with the head of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Prime Minister Fayed al-Sarraj, on Wednesday to sign agreements on security and military cooperation, as well as maritime jurisdictions.

The agreements have also raised hackles in Egypt and Cyprus, according to the UN's Libya envoy Ghassan Salame.

"An alliance cannot remain indifferent when one of its members openly violates international law and aims (to harm) another member," Mitsotakis said in a speech to his New Democracy party on Sunday.

Greece last week expressed its dissatisfaction with the accord and summoned the ambassadors of Turkey and Libya in Greece to ask for information on its content.

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias on Sunday met his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Choukry in Cairo to discuss the matter.


The deal comes despite calls from the Arab League - which includes Libya - to end cooperation with Turkey in protest of its military offensive against Kurdish forces in Syria last month.

Libya has been mired in chaos since a NATO-backed uprising that toppled and killed dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE back Khalifa Haftar, a military strongman in eastern Libya who launched an offensive in April in a bid to seize Tripoli from fighters loyal to the GNA.

Turkey and Qatar openly support his rival Sarraj.

Located in the southeastern Mediterranean, Greece - a NATO member like Turkey -maintains a delicate relationship with its neighbour, which has become a gateway to Europe with thousands of asylum-seekers flocking to the Greek islands.

Re: Turkey V Cyprus.

Not only a poser for NATO but also for the EU. Turkish Government could even supply the boats to ship refugees into Greek waters.
