A Turkish navy corvette has been seen in Cyprus` exclusive economic zone. The government of the Republic of Cyprus is “taking in parallel all necessary measures to ensure unhindered drilling activity offshore,” Minister of Defence Christophoros Phokaides said on September 24, according to CNA.

Phokaides said that allies and friendly countries are being kept informed.

The Turkish corvette is near the drilling unit Saipem 10000, that CNA reports “will explore and develop hydrocarbon reservoirs in Cyprus` block 9 on behalf of ENI/KOGAS.”
