Energy Minister Sunat Atun has said that Turkey and the TRNC will construct a pipe line in North Cyprus for the transfer of Israeli gas to Europe via Turkey.

Atun told Turkish daily ‘Milliyet’ that the Turkish Cypriots are ready to undertake an international role and that the Greek Cypriots have no say on the issue. He also said that they are waiting for the results of seismic research before bringing across a platform for the drilling.

Atun also confirmed that Turkey will begin exploratory drilling offshore Guzelyurt and thanked the Turkish Minister of Energy Berat Albayrak for his related statements on the issue.
