Italian ship “Explora” docked in Gaidouronissi

exploraItalian ship “Explora” docked in Gaidouronissi, 8 n.m. south of Ierapetra, on the Libyan Sea.

“Explora” was deploying cables from last Saturday until Monday afternoon.

The Italian ship was forced to dock to Gaidouronissi, due to strong winds in the area.

“Explora” is at the center of a diplomatic arguement between Turkey and Greece, because our “neighbor” country disputes the sovereign rights of Greece.

Turkish government demanded by the captain of “Explora” to ask for a permission, in order to continue deploying cables in the sea, while the ship was in Greek territorial waters.
