EU stands by Cyprus in Turkey drilling dispute: Tusk

May 9, 2019

SIBIU, Romania (Reuters) – European Council President Donald Tusk said on Thursday that the European Union stood behind Cyprus in a dispute with Turkey over offshore drilling operations.

“The EU stands united behind Cyprus and expects Turkey to respect the sovereign rights of EU member states,” Tusk told a news conference after the Cypriot president, Nicos Anastasiades, addressed his fellow EU leaders on the matter during talks in Romania.
