Turkey, Greece and EU in diplomatic standoff over drilling in disputed waters

Turkey has rejected Greek and EU claims that Turkish drilling for gas and oil off Cyprus was illegitimate, and said it showed the EU could not be an impartial mediator on the Cyprus problem. Turkey and Cyprus have overlapping claims in that part of the Mediterranean and Cyprus say Turkey’s actions are contrary to international law. Israel and Egypt also expressed unease about Turkey’s moves.
