Cyprus Turkey



I know the feeling, I keep getting harassed by some Turks, possibly the government itself, in trying to take down my site. It’s been under repeated DDOS attack originating from different places inside the formerly Christian Byzantine state.

NOTE: Greeks have been harassed ever since the Turks invaded Greece, with latest being northern Cyprus.

Greek Cyprus accuses Turkey of ‘harassment’ in energy search

NICOSIA – Agence France-Presse

Greek Cyprus said on Feb. 3 it would not accept Turkey’s “provocations” after claims a Norwegian ship was ‘harassed’ while surveying for offshore oil and gas reserves.

Greek Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said the vessel was undertaking seismic research for French oil giant Total near Blocks 10 and 11 off the south coast when a radio communication ordered it to “abandon position.”

He said the incident came at a time when the United Nations was trying to find a formula for long-stalled Cyprus peace talks to begin.

Officials said that Turkish frigate “Giresun” had ordered Norwegian seismic vessel “Princess” to “leave Turkish waters” while it was within the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

The government said it would not be swayed from its aim to exploit energy riches beneath the east Mediterranean.
