The UK is in regular contact with Governments of Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus with regard to the ongoing tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean. Officials continue to raise issues with the parties concerned.

We believe it is critical for stability in the Mediterranean and for the integrity of the rules-based international system that tensions be reduced and that disputes be resolved through dialogue and in accordance with international law, including the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). We will continue to work with all parties in the region to that end.
