Prime Minister Ersin Tatar announced on Friday that the coalition government approved the use of Geçitkale Airport as a base for Turkey's unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) operating in Eastern Mediterranean, over a request by Ankara.

The cabinet decision allowed for aerial vehicles operating over the Eastern Mediterranean to assist Turkish drilling ships and to be deployed from the airport as of Dec. 16.

Previously, Turkey has sent an expert team to the area for investigations at the airport, originally build in 1982 according to NATO standards.

Prime Minister Ersin Tatar told that Geçitkale Airport had been given to the use of Turkish Cypriot Peace Forces Command as of Friday, adding Turkey and TRNC will continue their powerful cooperation both on the table and on the field.

Turkey was previously using the Dalaman airport in southern Turkey's Muğla province for the flight of UAVs.
