Cyprus issues anti-Navtex as Turkey announces exercises off north

Under a Navtex — or marine advisory — issued by Turkey, the exercises will take place on November 3 and 4. According to state broadaster CyBC, the drills’ designated areas are around Cape Apostolos Andreas off the Karpas peninsula, and in waters off Famagusta, Cyprus.

Cypriot authorities countered by issuing a navigational warning of their own, advising ships to disregard the “illegal” Turkish advisory.

Speaking on CNN Turk, Cavusoglu said that Ankara will “not abandon its rights,” and that their drilling platforms would be moved from the Black Sea into the Mediterranean.
