Greece, Cyprus push for tougher EU response to Turkey’s natural gas exploration

 

  • Greece and Cyprus pushed for a tougher European Union response to Turkey’s natural gas exploration in the contested Mediterranean waters at an EU summit on 16 Oct.
  • This came after Ankara restarted operations of a survey ship it withdrew last month.
  • Two weeks after their last summit where leaders discussed economic sanctions, the EU has so far failed to persuade Ankara to stop exploring in waters disputed by Greece and Cyprus.
