By 3 years ago

Turkey’s Ambassador to Greece, Burak Ozugergin claimed that his country’s drilling ships and seismic research vessels will remain in Cyprus’ EEZ unless the decision making and energy benefits are shared with Turkish-Cypriots.

Ozugergin made the controversial comments in an interview with the Greek newspaper Kathimerini., adding that the drilling ships Fatih and Yavuz were operating within Turkey's continental shelf and not Cyprus'.

When asked about Greece-Turkey relations Ozugergin insisted that Turkey is not a revisionist country and that it respects the Lausanne Treaty and its neighbours borders, contrary to what the Greek public is being told.
