Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades has said Cyprus would like to work with Turkey on gas development but warned that Ankara should stop its “gunboat diplomacy”.

While Turkey has said its intervention to prevent drilling for gas in Cypriot waters is based on solidarity with the Turkish-controlled northern section of the island, Anastasiades said this is a “cover” to achieve control over the area, according to local media reports.
