Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq referred on Thursday to the answer which the UNSG`s spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric gave on Monday about drilling operations in Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and the issue of hydrocarbons, in view of Turkish activities in the Cypriot EEZ.

Asked by a Turkish journalist if the Secretary-General is concerned by the fact that natural resources around Cyprus would benefit only one community but not by the Turkish Cypriots because there is no solution to the Cyprus problem and responding to the journalist`s remark that the Secretary-General has repeated many times that both communities have the same rights to their natural resources, Haq said “I would just refer to you to what Stéphane said about the matter a few days ago. I don’t have anything further to add to that.”

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Ankara issued a navigational telex, announcing its intention to start drilling off Cyprus until September 3. The Turkish drill ship “Fatih” is located almost 40 nautical miles west of the Akamas peninsula and 83 nautical miles from the Turkish coast. The area falls within the EEZ and continental shelf of the Republic of Cyprus.

2 Responses to UN refer to Dujarric’s response on hydrocarbons and drilling operations in Cyprus’ EEZ

  1. Richard Hans says:

    Your mistaken, the area falls within the EEZ an continental shelf of the Republic of Turkey and the TRNC. SP in fact, its the administration int eh south acting provocatively.

  2. Richard Hans says:

    The idea of and EEZ zone is found in the form of a Charter mean sing that it is simply a kind of commercial agreement between members. It is not a lawful right or one which can be enforced lawfully. It is a similar arrangement to ” Ad Medium Fillum” in this sense.

    The Island of Cyprus isn’t a Greek territory and it never formed part of the 1832 Kingdom of Greece. The thrust of theGreek claims to Cyprus is that of ancient Myth and a referendum by Makariosis III. Hardly a substantive case.

    The other matters, relates to the 1960 Republic which is a failed state when it collapse owing to the Greek invasion when the Greek military machine form Greece together with the Greek National Guard on Cyprus , The acting president who was Greek and advancing the Greek cause and the Greek main stream population under the political agenda and manifesto of Enosis out of Maglia set about the destruction of the 1960 Republic, and they did caused the ethnic cleansing of the Turkish Cypriots which they did caused human atrocities and crimes against humanity which they caused the collapse of the entity.

    The south is help under the temporary administration found in the legal doctrine of Necessity when no one had jurisdiction to unilaterally pass such a ruling through the supreme court of the collapse Entity. The Greeks have filled that void in their own name in a pseudo the enosis where they promote their own values.

    The UN undemocratically passed a ruling preventing the recognition of the TRNC and threatened any state that does so announce recognition. the UN contrary to its own written constituion accepted a war torn and divided island into its membership and reneged its promise to life embargoes and sanctions on the TRNC. All telling signs.

    The UN sponsored negotiations, have been used to attempt to renegotiate the terms f the constitution and so obtain a pecuniary advantage much in the same way Makarious III attempted in the sunup o tEnosis. The presence circumstance is ceasefire that that is reflected by the presence of the UN peacekeeping force. The TRNC does not recognise the South or its admonition.

    The south installs statues of figures which are known terrorist Makarious III and EOKA persons providing calendar days and calling them Heroes while flying the flag of Greece independently along boulevards and administrative buildings.

    The ruling class and authority of the Island are the Turks, the litmus test for this can be seen in the Lausanne negotioations at which time it was the Authority and ruling class at the negotiating table and that was the Turks. The Greeks were absent because they had not rights, authority or jurisdiction.

    On a lighter note. Hellum isn’t a Greek food,m why are they attempting to Plagiarise and register it in Europe.
