Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades has defined the EastMed Pipeline project as “a response to Turkish challenges in the region” in an interview published by Greek TV channel on Friday.

Responding the question related with a recently inked EastMed Pipeline project between Greek Cypriot Administration, Greece and Israel, Greek Cypriot leader accused Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as an unpredictable leader with an agenda that goes beyond the aspirations of leaders who would like to have good relations with their neighbours.

Anastasiades also argued that due to the unpredictable approaches of Turkish officials, the US has reconsidered the strategic partners in the region.

“America is not abandoning their allies. It used to be Turkey, but today, as a result of Erdogan’s actions there has been a shift.  We can see this from the intervention in Syria and Iraq. He is a destabilising factor.” Anastasiades argued.

Greek Cypriot leader also reminded that the project has the backing of the US and the EU, which is also co-financing certain aspects of it.
