    The Republic of Cyprus continues its exploratory surveys for hydrocarbon reserves in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism Antonis Paschalides has said. The Minister, who met here Thursday Syrian Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources Sufian Al-Alao, stressed that Cyprus will not stop its research programme, noting that this constitutes Cyprus sovereign rights.

    Paschalides was referring to the harassment of research vessels by Turkish warships in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Republic of Cyprus, in November, in complete disregard of Cyprus sovereign rights. The issue of Turkish harassments and Cyprus protest to the UN in this respect was discussed during the Ministers meeting. Other issues discussed during the meeting were the delimitation of the EEZ between Cyprus and Syria, as well as their cooperation in the fields of oil industry and natural gas.

    Commenting on the issue of Turkish harassments, the Syrian Minister said we shall raise the viewpoint of our Cyprus friends to our government and we hope to find a solution for everything. Asked if Syria is restraint in its cooperation with Cyprus in the light of Turkey`s reaction, the Syrian Minister replied no, we cooperate with Cyprus and we are friends with Turkey and we hope to seek the benefits of the two peoples and all the peoples that are in this area.
