Cyprus issues anti-Navtex to counter Turkey's Navtex extending Yavuz's presence in its EEZ

The Republic of Cyprus has issued an anti-Navtex to counter a Navtex issued by Turkey which is extending drilling ship’s Yavuz presence in block 6 of Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The anti-Navtex issued by the Joint Rescue Coordination Center in Larnaca advises that the Turkish Navtex “is referring to an unauthorised and illegal activity of the drilling ship Yavuz and her supporting vessels in the Exclusive Economic Zone and the continental shelf of the Republic of Cyprus.”

“This action constitutes a gross violation of international law, affects the maritime safety procedures and is also a criminal offence under the laws of the Republic of Cyprus,” it adds.
