Chipre acusa a Turquía de expandir la "perforación ilegal" en el Mediterráneo oriental

September 17, 2020 - Los líderes de la Unión Europea se preparan para discutir un curso de acción para aliviar tensiones en el Mediterráneo oriental, cuando Turquía ha dicho que extenderá su búsqueda de petróleo y gas en aguas disputadas cerca de la costa de Chipre.

European Council chief Charles Michel pledged Wednesday that the bloc will defend the rights of member state Cyprus in its standoff with Turkey over maritime and energy rights.

Michel’s visit to the island came a day after Turkey said its Yavuz drillship would continue its search for oil and gas off Cyprus until October 12, in a move that could stir tension between the island’s Greek Cypriot government and Ankara.

EU leaders are due to meet on September 24-25 for a special summit to consider possible action against Turkey, with all options said to be on the table.
