US Ambassador, John Koenig met with Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades on Monday, and warned him not to allow exploration for natural gas in blocks 5 and 6.

The ambassador, commenting on the ‘Exclusive Economic Zone’, which has been unilaterally declared by South Cyprus, said that otherwise the current tensions in the eastern Mediterranean would worsen.
