By A. Makris

September 27, 2016 - Cyprus will protest to the international organizations and foreign governments over the harassment of a Cyprus-flagged research vessel by the Turkish frigate in the sea area of Cyprus, Government Spokesman Nikos Chistodoulides has said.
Spokesman noted that “the best answer to Turkey’s actions are the results of the recent third licensing round in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone.”

He said the incident involved a ship flying the Cyprus flag conducting research on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture off the coast of Akamas.
