The Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa research vessel has been receiving a series of warnings from the Greek Cypriot coast guard.

The ship, which was last recorded as being one nautical mile off the south side of the Karpaz Peninsula, has been sent warning messages four times daily on Channel 16 – the international hailing and distress calling channel.

The Greek Cypriot coast guard has warned the Barbaros that it presence is in violation of the law.

With one exception, the Barbaros has not responded. Nor has the Turkish Ministry of Energy given any official explanation.
