Head Of Turkish Cypriots Calls For Dialogue In E. Med

EastMed pipeline deal reached by Greek Cypriots, Israel, Greece not based on scientific developments: President Akinci.

The president of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Tuesday said diplomatic methods should be used extensively in a bid to counter growing tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Mustafa Akinci's remarks came at the International Science Diplomacy Forum held in the capital Lefkosa where he commented on the discovery of natural gas in the region and diplomatic ties with neighbors.
Akinci said the region was at crossroads with regard to the natural gas issue and Greek Cypriots had two alternatives, either maintaining diplomacy of tension or move towards cooperation in the light of the scientific developments.
Referring to the agreement Greek Cypriots, Israel and Greece reached on the EastMed project early January, Akinci said the project was not based on any concrete scientific reality and said diplomatic efforts in the region should be initiated in a bid to resolve dispute.
Many academics from the TRNC and their international counterparts were present at the forum.
