IRINI stopped control of suspicouos cargo shp enroute to Libya
In the morning of June 10, 2020, a Greek navy helicopter attempted to stop and check the 'Cirkin' which was accompanied by Turkish frigates in the Eastern Mediterenean Sea enroute from Istanbul to Libya, but retreated after a warning from Turkey's military. The Greek frigate “Spetsai” approached the cargo ship on suspicion of carrying weapons to Libya. The Greek ship was under the command of European IRINI operation, which was set up by the European Union last February to stop arms imports to Libya in accordance with the UN weapons embargo. The Italian commander of the European force ordered the commander of the Greek frigate to launch a helicopter and control the ship near Crete's southwest. As soon as the Greek helicopter approached the 'Cirkin', it received a call from a Turkish frigate that sent the message that 'the Turkish ship is under the protection of the Turkish republic'. After the radio message, the Italian commander ordered the Greek helicopter to return because IRINI doesn’t have authorisation to intervene with vessels accompanied by ships belonging to third countries. The 'Spetsai' continued to escort the suspicuous vessel from a distance.
