South Cyprus Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides has expressed the South’s disappointment and regret over the fact that not all EU member countries showed support regarding the “violations” of the country’s sovereign rights in its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) by Turkey.

“Solidarity among partners is a two-way street. On the issue of Ukraine, Cyprus has consistently participated in the EU consensus, actively supporting the EU position, even though it has entailed a significant cost for the Cyprus economy at a time when it is recovering from the blow suffered by the March 2013 Eurogroup decision,” he said.
