Nicosia monitors closely the course of Turkish drill-ship “Yavuz” within the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the Republic of Cyprus awaiting further developments.
A government source told CNA that there is nothing to announce at the moment, while the final destination of the drillship remains unknown. “We monitor the situation, we are aware of what’s happening. At the moment there is nothing to say” the same source said.
According to the website Marinetraffic, “Yavuz” is sailing off Cyprus towards the second drillship “Fatih”, which remains anchored 36 nautical miles west of Akamas peninsula since May 4. Before that, “Yavuz” stayed off the coast of Karpasia, in the eastern coast of Cyprus, until September 17, when it departed for a Turkish port in Mersin.
