The U.S. and its unaltered stance regarding Cyprus's EEZ

The U.S. and its unaltered stance regarding Cyprus's EEZ
The United States of America sent a pretty clear message on Wednesday addressed to all sides involved.

According to a State Department official, the U.S. recognises the right of Cyprus to develop the resources in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

"Asked to comment on new threats made by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim regarding the arrival of ExxonMobil's vessel in the Mediterranean, he said: 'The US policy on Cyprus' EEZ is longstanding and has not changed: the United States recognises the right of the Republic of Cyprus to develop its resources in its Exclusive Economic Zone'", ANA-MPA reports.

Beside this, once more, the State Department spokesman stressed "the consistent American position that the natural resources of the Republic of Cyprus should be shared fairly between the two communities.".../IBNA
