MEPs are likely to condemn Turkey’s “maritime survey” activities as encroaching upon the Republic of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone and its sovereign right to explore the natural resources within it, in a debate with the Commission on Wednesday.

The draft resolution, to be voted on Thursday, says Turkey should immediately withdraw its vessels “operating in and around Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone” and stop its “provocative actions”.
