A memorandum has been signed between South Cyprus and Egypt in Cairo to directly connect the ‘Aphrodite’ reservoir, which is situated in 12th Parcel to Egypt.

It has been indicated that South Cyprus and Egypt acted secretly as they are afraid of attracting the reaction of Turkey, and that Greek Cypriot Energy Minister Lakkotripis visited Egypt suddenly.

The agreement signed yesterday between Greek Cypriot Energy Minister Yorgos Lakkotripis and Egypt Petroleum Minister Şerif İsmail in Cairo. By that agreement, Aphrodite reservoir will be connected to Egypt, most probably to İtkut, and the fundamental step of exporting and selling of the so called Greek Cypriot Natural Gas has been constituted.
