Turkish Navy Frigate Harasses Cypriot Dolphin Research Vessel

August 27, 2016

NICOSIA – Cypriot officials will reportedly protest what they called Turkey’s harassment of a Cypriot vessel carrying out dolphin research.

The incident happened on Aug. 24 and government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said Cyprus will contact international organizations and foreign governments to make its case, the Cyprus Mail reported.

The government said the research vessel was working on behalf of the Agriculture Ministry 12 miles off the Akamas coast on the western tip of the island.

The frigate contacted the vessel and demanded that it abandon the area because it was violating Turkish territory, the daily Phileleftheros said.

Turkey claims it has rights in the area and has sought to disrupt natural gas exploration carried out by international energy companies who won concessions granted by the Cypriot government.

Turkey previously had sent in a warship and research vessel violating Cyprus’ sovereign waters during a search for energy fields.
