The Turkish military has been conducting a live fire exercise today off the north west coast of Cyprus on the same day that Exxon Mobil was scheduled to hold a news conference to discuss the energy prospects of the island’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The military drill began at 5am on Wednesday morning after Turkey issued two NAVTEX (notice to mariners) and is expected to continue until the early afternoon.

It will also include Turkish seismic survey vessel ‘Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha’, submarines and frigates which will be reportedly circling within bloc 6 and 7 of [South] Cyprus’ EEZ.
