EU PREPARES TO EXPAND TURKEY SANCTIONS OVER EAST MEDITERRANEAN GAS DRILLING

The Middle East Monitor on 21 January reported that the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy has announced that the EU is preparing a list of names of figures and businesses from Turkey who are to be sanctioned over the ongoing dispute regarding resources in the Eastern Mediterranean waters.  It says that no further details were given, particularly regarding when the sanctions would be imposed.  It explains that Turkey’s action was in retaliation to a deal between Greece, Southern Cyprus, and Israel to build a pipeline harnessing the reserves of natural gas off the southern shores of the island.
