South’s EEZ Not For Turkish Cypriots’ Benefit

Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) does not serve the interests of the Turkish Cypriots, South Cyprus Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis has said.

Addressing the Economist conference in Athens, the Greek Cypriot energy minister questioned Turkey’s argument that its actions were intended to protect the rights of the Turkish Cypriots.

Focusing on important developments on oil exploration in [South] Cyprus’ EEZ, Lakkotrypis made reference to the latest discovery in the ‘Calypso’ gas field. These new resources would be added to the South’s energy portfolio, he said.
