Egypt is following with concern the ongoing developments over Turkey's plans to carry out exploratory drilling for oil and gas in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ)، off its western coast.

Egypt also called on Ankara to respect the island’s rights and refrain from illegal activity, the foreign ministry said Saturday in a statement.


The Egyptian Foreign Ministry warned of any unilateral actions that affect security and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean region، stressing the necessity of committing to the rules and provisions of the international law.


“This provocative action by Turkey constitutes a flagrant violation of the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus according to International and European Union Law،” a press release issued by the Foreign Ministry said.
