Turkish Cypriot leader: We will drill offshore
NEW YORK (AP) — The leader of the breakaway Turkish Cypriots in ethnically split Cyprus said his government intends to conduct offshore oil and gas drilling, in a move that could reignite tensions with rival Greek Cypriots over the island's potential mineral riches and stoke more instability in the conflict-ridden region.
Dervis Eroglu said they were likely to begin offshore drilling for oil and gas "within six months," having signed agreements with a Turkish petroleum company to do so.
