Yesterday, the European Union placed two Turkish individuals under restrictive measures in relation to Turkey’s unauthorised drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean.
According to details, they have been responsible for or involved in planning, directing and implementing offshore hydrocarbon exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, which have not been authorised by the Republic of Cyprus.
“The restrictive measures consist of a travel ban to the EU and an asset freeze. Moreover, EU persons and entities are not allowed to make funds available to the two listed persons,” the statement said.
“A framework for restrictive measures in response to Turkey’s illegal drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean was set up in November 2019 after the Council had repeatedly expressed its concerns and strongly condemned the drilling activities in various sets of conclusions, including European Council conclusions of 22 March 2018 and 20 June 2019,” the statement concluded.
