European Parliament urges Turkey to end unilateral activities

European Parliament urges Turkey to end unilateral activitiesThursday's resolution was approved by six of the EU Parliament's seven political groups, from the center-right Christian Democrats, conservatives and reformists to the leftist Greens and former communists

Members of the European Parliament adopted a resolution at a Brussels voting session on Thursday which calls on Turkey to immediately end any further illegal exploration and drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, ANa reports.

It also calls on Greece's neighboring country to refrain from violating Greek airspace and Greek and Cypriot territorial waters and stop its "nationalistic warmongering rhetoric," notes the MEPs' statement. 

The resolution comes ahead of a special European Council meeting on September 24-25 on Turkey's activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, and also urges sanctions against Turkey over its energy research in disputed waters there, unless the country shows "sincere cooperation and concrete progress" in easing tensions with Greece and Cyprus.
