After HoR Speaker has joined rejection bid, Israel opposes Libya-Turkey MoU

The President of Cyprus said Friday that he was in touch with the leaders of Egypt, Israel, Greece and Lebanon to formulate joint diplomatic action aimed at countering the Turkey-Libya maritime border deal.

Times of Israel newspaper reported Cyprus’ government spokesman, Kyriakos Koushios, as saying that he made a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who condemned the MoU between Libya and Turkey in maritime boundaries’ cooperation, saying it was illegal.

This telephone call came after a conversation with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.

In the meantime, House of Representatives’ Speaker, Aquila Saleh, rejected the MoU with Turkey and described it as a violation of the constitutional declaration and the Libyan Political Agreement, after he visited Greece and Egypt in a bid to rally efforts around cancelling the MoU.
