Cyprus Dispute in terms of Energy Politics

Extract



Abstract: Ongoing Cyprus Dispute in the East Mediterranean has reached a new stage after the beginning of drilling activities on the southern side of the island in recent months. Greek Cypriot government made agreements with some companies and governments to secure their position. Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus also made an agreement with Turkey to initiate exploratory studies on the northern part of the island. Energy discoveries around the island could be used as a leverage to solve Cyprus Dispute within the bi-communal and bi-zonal federation model, but on the other hand, it can even further escalate tensions and guarantee the divided status of the island.

Keywords: Cyprus Dispute, Cyprus Problem, East Mediterranean, Energy Politics.
