Israel urges Turkey to respect Cyprus right to energy

Israel's foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman (L) speaks with Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades during a meeting at the presidential palace in Nicosia on November 5, 2014Israel’s foreign minister said Wednesday that Turkey must respect Cyprus’s right to explore for natural gas and avoid sparking unnecessary tension in the region. Avigdor Lieberman said each country must respect the sovereign rights of their neighbour, adding that it was “extremely unnecessary” for Turkey to cause friction in a region already mired in conflict. “We respect the integrity of Cyprus. We’re sure that you have your exclusive rights to explore in your economic zone of the gas and oil reserves,” he told reporters after talks with his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides.
