12 February, 19:57

    BRUSSELS - The European Commission on Monday called on Turkey "to refrain from any actions that might damage good neighbourly relations" after Cypus said the Turkish military had obstructed a ship contracted by Italian oil company Eni to explore for natural gas.

    "Turkey needs to commit unequivocally to neighbourly relations and avoid any kind of source of friction, threat or action directed against a member state," a spokeswoman for the executive European Commission said. "The EU also stresses the need to respect the sovereignty of member states over their territorial sea and airspace."
