Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides condemned on Tuesday the signing of a memorandum between Turkey and Libya “allegedly attempting to delimit maritime zones between them.”
He stressed that “the memorandum, inter alia, violates international law and has no legal basis at all.”
According to the Cypriot news agency, the minister made this statement while attending a session of the EU Foreign Affairs Council (FAC), held earlier in the day in Brussels.
He asserted that “this development, coupled with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on military cooperation, raises concerns also in other states in the wider region, while undermining the efforts of the international community to create suitable conditions to allow for a Summit dedicated to finding a political solution to the Libyan problem. ”
