Companies will give opportunity to solution of Cyprus problem

Prof. Dr. Ayla Gürel, one of the senior researchers of Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), asserted that the companies involved in hydrocarbon studies in the so-called exclusive economic zone of the Greek Cypriot administration will decelerate their studies in order to give opportunity to the solution of the Cyprus problem in addition to the economic reasons.

Gürel stated that maintenance of the ship Saipe 10000 which makes drillings on behalf of ENI-Kogas consortium of Italian South Korea for three months and the possibility of extension of this period will be positive in terms of gaining time for solution of the Cyprus problem.

Saying that the issue of the maintenance of Saipe is created on purpose and ENI should make 2 drillings but they wanted to extend these drillings over a period of time due to the economic reasons, Ayla Gürel stated that Noble Energy has privilege because of the existence of the USA. (Kıbrıs)
