In the agenda of Turkish Cypriot press today, several newspapers brought up the amounting tension between Turkey and Greek Cypriot Adminidtration over Turkish drill vessels’ new destination off to Paphos coasts on their front pages.

Turkish drill vessel Yavuz which was returned to Mersin port for maintenance after finalizing its activities around Karpaz peninsula last week headed towards Paphos coasts, namely Parcel 7 for new drilling operation yesterday.

After the new destination of Yavuz vessel towards Paphos coasts, Greek Cypriot administration issued a new NAVTEX condemning Turkey’s drill activities as illegal and unauthorized along with an international arrest warning on Yavuz vessel.

In response to the NAVTEX issued by Greek Cypriot Administration, Turkey also announced that they issued a new NAVTEX related with Yavuz vessels’ new destination, justifying new drill activities on the behalf of the agreement reached with TRNC on conducting drilling activities around the island.

In the light of these controversial activities, Halkin Sesi newspaper carried out the headline “Tension Over Parcel 7”, whereas Kibris Postasi has preferred to use the title “Yavuz Vessel salutes Fatih” in its front page.

In the same parallel of Halkin Sesi and Kibris Postasi, Afrika newspaper also used the headline “Tension is amounting” and Havadis newspaper “Yavuz anchored at Parcel 7: Tension”. Related with the amounting tension on the coasts of Cyprus Vatan newspaper has used Minister of Energy and Economy Hasan Taçoy’s statement “Greek Cypriot Administration better to come the senses” in their front page.
