Cyprus: Gas Search will Continue Despite Turkish “Threats”

NICOSIA — Cyprus says the search for oil and gas off its shores will continue after Turkey said that it would “take all necessary measures to protect its interests” in the eastern Mediterranean, as well as those of breakaway Turkish Cypriots.

Cyprus’ government said Friday it’s regrettable that Turkey resorts to “threats” to advance its own interests under the guise of concern for the rights of Turkish Cypriots.

The Turkish government said earlier Friday that it expects Greek Cypriots to cease their gas search and to stop acting as if they’re the sole owners of the ethnically divided island’s natural resources.

Cyprus said the gas search is in line with international law that Turkey disregards, adding that Turkish Cypriots will benefit after a reunification deal is reached.
