Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that the Greek Cypriot Administration’s incomprehensible plans in the Eastern Mediterranean are changing the way of Turkey’s approach on the issue.

Speaking at a joint press conference after their meeting with his Lebanese counterpart Necip Miktadi, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan touched upon the issue of exclusive economic zone in the Mediterranean and said during his meeting with Mr Miktadi he found the opportunity to stress the need for paying more attention to some threatening steps that were taken in the region.

‘Because, the Greek Cypriot Administration’s incomprehensible plans in the Eastern Mediterranean we are changing our way of approach. I believe that Lebanon’s sensitivity on the issue is part of our common sensitivity’ he said.

The Turkish Premier also added that the 1960 agreement authorizes, the guarantor powers, Britain, Turkey and Greece to deploy security forces on the island but it does not all allow South Cyprus to have a new military structuring.
