The Initial report as mentioned in Maritime Executive contains the positives in the headline, but the body does express caution see also...http://cyprus-mail.com/2018/02/06/hints-encouraging-gas-finds-experts-urge-caution/.

The politics and Turkey's bellicose attitude are another matter.

So happy that it is very likely there are additional funds in Calypso.

Egypt, Cyprus and Israel need to stick together.

Israel and Cyprus need to build that pipeline to the European markets.

The whole world is in Cyprus’ side. UNCLOS is very clear and no one is going to be setting a precedence against it.

My take is that there is not much we can do if Turkey decides to prevent us from exploiting our resources, and I don't really see anyone else is willing to act against them apart from with words.

For the first time I can remember you have actually written enough to convey something of note. I agree with you. :wink:

That, sadly has been the position for Cyprus, all along, plenty of words but no action...
