Barbaros has entered the EEZ of Cyprus
The Turkish Cypriot ship Barbaros entered Cyprus’s Exclusive Economic Zone on Thursday afternoon, moving in an area where hydrocarbon exploration is already taking place on behalf of Nicosia.
According to the Cypriot media, the course of the Barbaros vessel is monitored by the Cypriot authorities, which appear reassuring in their estimations.
Cyprus expects the intervention of the UN Security Council, which is expected to issue a strict warning to Turkey.
According to what is known, the Turkish vessel has entered a maritime area south of Limassol, at an area within the plots of the Cypriot EEZ, where research is already being carried out on behalf of Nicosia.
In the previous months, Barbaros had conducted seismographic surveys south of Larnaca.
With a Navtex, Turkey announced seismograph surveys in the region by R/V BARBAROS HAYREDDİN PAŞA and its accompanying vessels M/V TANUX-1 and R/V APOLLO MOON, for the period between May 1 and July 31, 2019.
The Cypriot government, responding to the Turkish Navtex, has pointed out that such a move is illegal, with Ankara responding in high tones.
