WASHINGTON (ANA/P. Kasfikis)—The State Department characterised Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu’s statement in early May, who said that Ankara has launched the process for the conducting of drilling inside Cyprus’ EEZ, a ‘very provocative’ step that will increase the tension in the region .

At a question by Hellas Journal website, a representative of US Secretary of State expressed Washington’s deep concern over Cavusoglu’s recent statements quoting a previous US State Department announcement in which it calls Ankara to annul its decision for the illegal drilling in Cyprus’ EEZ.

  1. Really, the fascist empire has spoken.again… to condemn another countries right to sell oil !

    Today, after waging war against 8 oil producing countries of the Middle east who provoked war by the U.S for selling oil …the now have added oil producing countries Venezuela and Iran because they threaten America by selling oll! It is as simple as that!

    Today. they have sent more warships with American taxpayer money to wage war on a country who has not broken any international laws…and has signed an international agreement to not develope Nuclear warheads with the Major powers of the world …and to date has been compliant to all conditions of the agreement…as reported by the International Atomic energy commission of inspectors!

    Today, it is clear that these sociopaths war criminals and fascist ..have attacked oil tankers in the Persiona Gulf ..and fabricated another war crimes lie to the American people ot provide them with a pretext to attack Iran Economically, Politically, and militarily!

    America is no longer a democracy ..and is now provoking wars thruout the world to consolidate it undeclared ownership of the world! Turkey is merely another country obstructing that control! These degenerates could care less about Cyprus and Greece…other than making sure that they are subordinate to White Supremacist Aristocrats who own our government!

    Unfortunately, we are impotent to stop them, and leave it to Russia and China!

  2. America is sharply criticizing Turkey, according to the article. Is this apparent new attitude for real, however, or just for posturing? We will see the answer if actual shooting starts.

    1. John…Pompeo, Bolton, Trump and Menendez.are certifiable degenerate mobsters, in control of our country…and are in the hunt to kill 80 million Iranians right now, and have already killed 550,000 Iraqis. and when you combine Afghanistan, libya, Syria, Yemen , Somalia, you are looking at another 3 million according to UN stats!

      Posturing is what we pray for, because these fanatics.will simply drag Greeks into a war which represent their interests in monopolizing the oil reserves of the world…not the rights of the citizens of Cyprus!

      If this is protecting Cypriot rights ,.then why has TNH or Anastasiades not advised and informed Cypriots of the consequences and threats to their entire way of life and economies , if Exxon Mobil and the other Nato oil barons begin drilling multiple whole in the deep seas of Cyprus

      These oil factories are legally banned from both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of America by the people, due to not only residue, but catastrophic oil spills that will turn Cypriot waters and beaches into black holes and destroy their tourist, fishing, food , marine life, recreational, hotel and devalue the coastal properties of the communities of Cyprus!

      Would you agree without the approval of the people of Cyprus and their coastal communities ..Exxon Mobile and the Turkish oil barons.have no right to drill in any part of Cypriot waters!

      U.S needs Turkey to cooperate in Iran/Syria war crimes.. just posturing!

    2. Do you have any evidence of the people of Cyprus opposing the offshore oil/gas exploration?

  3. TNH has been criminally derelict in not informing the people of Cyprus on the threats and consequences of placing oil factories thruout the pristene waters of Cyprus.which are documented on the internet for all to see… Deepwater Horizon oil spill ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER, GULF OF MEXICO [2010], and was proceeded by another disaster in the Caspian Sea..in 2008 and that all the articles feature only Aristcratic corrupt politicians like Menendez,, Exxon Mobil and Anastasiades,.I can comfortably assume full and transparent disclosure has not been presented to the people!

    Just think what one oil rig could do 45 miles from the coastline of Louisiana , Texas, Alabama and Florida to their coastal communities and lives and then imagine what multiple rigs subject to the same events.and add Sabotage..which the neighborhood surrounding Cyprus could easily target. I would hold Anastasiades Criminally libel for prosecution in threatening the security and safety of the territorial waters and properties of the people of Cyprus!

    There is no evidence any debate was solicited by the Cypriot community, or any opportunity has been taken by their representatives!

    The same reasons that Americans ban these oil rigs , should be the same reasons that the people of Cyprus could ban these oil rigs!

    John and all Greeks..view Deep Water Horizon spill and tell TNH, Menendez, and Anastasiades what you think of their view of the Jewel of the Mediterranean!

    TNH write somethng

    1. I doubt that The National Herald is a major news source for the people of Cyprus.

      Your post implies that the Cypriots are a very uneducated people, with no awareness of the pollution challenges attached to these energy forms. They do know the risks, and, like so many Americans, they are nevertheless going to try to develop the resources near them.

  4. John, you continue to play…. good guy , bad guy act ..to conceal your support for the “Glory to America” Agenda promoted by your Greek Secret Societies crazed to protect the interests of Corrupt Politicians like Robert Menendez, Geoffrey Pyatt, John Bolton , Mike Pompeo , Tsipras and Anastasiades!

    To protect your Aristocratric buddies…you insult TNH …by suggesting the article they write in their separate Cyprus section are not reflective of what is going on in Cyprus and represents more fake news by TNH!
    t
    You then follow this up … .and tell the readers , after I have just told you that American …”DO NOT ALLOW THESE OIL RESOURCES TO BE MINED IN THERE OCEANS….YOU STATE …and somehow know …that the Cypriots like American ..want to put these oil rigs in their pristene waters!!!~

    You then suggest, like a white supremacist aristocrat…that you know better what the people of Cyprus want .and then.disgracefully imply, that we consider the people of Cyprus uneducated, while suggesting that the Aristocrates you represent are in the end…the legitimate educated people of Cyprus who happen to support a future which may make them a lot of money individually ..but for the masses gain nothing for the people!

    So John…you have not answered me or the readers..did you and your Elitist Masons view the Deep Horizon Oil Spill on the internet and educate yourselves, and tell the readers why Cypriots will do ..what Americans will not do?

    1. Name-calling is not constructive here.

      Bottom line: Michael thinks we must hate America if we really love Greece and Cyprus. But who else on here thinks that way? Not many, I believe.

  5. Thank you John, for finally revealing to all Greeks what exactly, I as a made in America of Spartan Blood.citizen absolutely and undeniably want. EXCEPT LET ME ADD TO YOUR WORDS…..

    MICHAEL THINKS WE MUST HATE AMERICA …IF WE REALLY LOVE AMERICA!

    ONLY WHITE SUPREMACIST ARISTOCRATIC DEGENERATE SADIST AND NARCISSIST CAN LOVE A COUNTRY WHO HAS WAGED ECONOMIC , POLITICAL AND MILITARY WARS THAT HAVE SHATTERED THE LIES OF INNOCENT PEOPLE OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS AND CONTINUE TO BLATANTLY CONTINUE PERPETUAL WARS WITH NO END IN SIGHT BY.AN ORGANIZED CRIME FAMILY WHOSE LUST FOR BLOOD IS UNENDING IN THEIR QUEST TO TAKE OVER THE GOVERNMENTS OF INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD LIKE GREECE AND CYPRUS!

    CONGRESSWOMEN TULSI GABBARD EXPLAIN WHY SHE AND i HATE AMERICA,and YOU, TNH, AHEPA MASON MENENDEZ, AND YOUR GREEK SECRET SOCIETIES BECAUSE THE AMERICA TODAY IS NOT WHO WE ARE…AND WHY I AN TULSI STAND AGAINST WHAT YOU SUPPORT.

    “Stand against powerful politicians from both parties who sit in ivory towers thinking up new wars to wage and new places for people to die. Wasting trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives, undermining our economy and security, and destroying our middle class. These self-serving politicians are dragging us from one regime change war to the next, exacerbating the New Cold War, and pushing us to the brink of a nuclear war”.
    This is not who we are, America!

    1. I doubt if anyone else is still reading this thread.

      No one else is posting in support of your hate-America statements. Even Tulsi Gabbard would probably be embarrassed by them.

  6. John, THE WHOLE WORLD posted support for Me, Julian Assange, and Tulsi Gabbard…when an International Gallop poll of the countries of the world …that the “Greatest Threat and danger to world peace” was…Greek Secret society leader and Mason Robert Menendez and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    NOW THAT IS SOMETHING ONLY YOU and TNH, CAN BE PROUD OF…AND MUST BE SALIVATING AT THE THOUGHT OF ANOTHER WAR IN .BOMBING IRAN, VENEZUELA, RUSSIA , CHINA, CUBA. TURKEY. AND OF COURSE…THE GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH…..FOR THE “GLORY TO AMERICA” GREEK CULTS OF ENDY ZEMENIDES AND ROBERT MENENDEZ..WHO ARE SIMPLY SUBCONTRACTED JEWISH LOBBIES TO REPRESENT THEIR INTERESTS!

    JOHN ,.DID I MENTION THAT OVER HALF THE CONGRESS OF AMERICA HATES AMERICA…AND ARE ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE THE LEADER OF AMERICA!

    TULSI , LOVES THE PEOPLE OF CYPRUS IN STANDING UP TO YOUR OIL BARONS…

    Stand up against those who pollute our land, the air we breathe, the precious fresh water resources we need to live, and our oceans.

    Stand up against those who perpetuate bigotry, hatred and violence against our brothers and sisters because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

    Stand up against a President who bows to the wishes of the neocons around him, clamoring for regime change wars in Venezuela and Iran.

    Stand up against those who dishonor our troops, treating them as political pawns, and mercenaries-for-hire in wars around the world

    JOHN TAKE CREDIT FOR HATE CRIMES!.
