UK Minister restates official position on Turkish drilling and guarantees

The UK Minister for the European Neighbourhood Wendy Morton has restated the official British position on Turkey’s drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as on the issue of third country guarantees over Cyprus.

Responding to a letter by the Conservative MP Sir Roger Gale, the Foreign Office Minister notes that the UK “has been clear from the start, in both public and private, that we deplore Turkish drilling in the waters around Cyprus.”

According to Morton, the UK Government has made this view known to Turkey at ministerial and official level.
