On 5 April, Greek Prime Minister Loucas Papademos condemned Turkish threats against Cyprus’ sovereign right to explore and exploit its hydrocarbon reserves in its Exclusive Economic Zone.

He said that neighbouring countries should rather be interested to improve friendship. Papademos also said that Greece is considering signing agreements to delineate its EEZ with Egypt and Cyprus noting that Athens has already signed agreements with Italy and Albania.

Replying to another question on the Cyprus problem, the Greek Prime Minister stressed that the UN led procedure of the Cyprus talks must continue, adding that Greece does not accept any proposals on alternative solutions.
