"Mr President, today we are celebrating Europe Day. However, just a few weeks ago, before the Republic of Cyprus took over the Presidency of the European Council, occupying Turkish forces were still causing provocation in Cyprus and seriously undermining the climate in our geostrategic area as a whole. They ignored everyone and illegally issued permits for exploratory drilling in the sea between Cyprus and Greece and illegal drilling for oil in the occupied part of Cyprus. I roundly condemn this new provocation by Turkey, a candidate country. I call on you to protect the dignity of the European Union itself, the unity of the Republic of Cyprus and peace in the area. I call on the European Union to put pressure on Turkey to stop this provocation and, if it does not, to impose strict sanctions on it. Turkish expansionism is putting the European legal order at risk. We must react."@en1
