Turkish seismic exploration vessel `Barbaros` entered Cyprus` Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The move comes a few days after Turkey issued a maritime order (NAVTEX) for the area. This prompted President Nicos Anastasiades to suspend his participation in the UN backed negotiations which aim to reunify the island under a federal roof.
