Announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France about Cyprus and drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean
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.
We call on Turkey to avoid any action that would be against the law and endanger regional stability.
