    Cyprus does not consider that Turkey has rights over the oil deposits which might possibly exist in the Cyprus coastal areas, especially in the southern coastal part.

    Invited to comment Turkeys objections to the signing of a maritime agreement between Lebanon and Cyprus that would cover potential underwater energy resources, Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos stressed here Friday the need that these agreements should be kept secret until they are signed.

    Turkey alleged that Lebanon should ask for Turkey`s opinion before signing any agreement with Cyprus, which has ``a Turkish part, according to Ankara.

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas signed on Wednesday in Beirut an agreement for the Delimitation of the Exclusive Economic Zone between the Republic of Cyprus and Lebanon.
