The European Parliament adopted a resolution in which it called on the European Council to impose tough sanctions on Turkey in connection with its actions in the Mediterranean Sea.
631 deputies voted for the adoption of the document, three against.
European deputies noted that the resolution was adopted due to the fact that Turkey undermines the prospects for resolving the problem of Northern Cyprus. Now this part of the island is called the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, the rest of it is controlled by the Cypriot authorities.
The resolution also notes the disagreements between the European Union and Turkey on the issue of resolving the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh: the deputies condemned Turkey's direct support for Azerbaijan.
The final decision on sanctions against Turkey will be made by the heads of state of the European Union at the summit on December 10-11.
