Johnson expresses disapproval of Turkish actions in Cyprus’ EEZ

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has expressed his full support to Cyprus and his disapproval of Turkish actions in the island’s EEZ during a phone conversation he had on Friday night with President Nicos Anastasiades.

In statements in Limassol, Anastasiades said the phone conversation with the British Prime Minister took place on his own initiative and “it was certainly not about Brexit”.

“It was mainly about Turkey`s illegal actions and what we seek to achieve at next Thursday`s European Council,” he added.

Anastasiades said Johnson expressed his full support and his disapproval of Turkey`s actions, noting that they would have further consultations at the European Council.
