Turkey to continue search for gas and oil reserves despite curbs by EU
July 16, 2019

 

Turkey plans to send a fourth ship to waters off Cyprus to search for gas and oil despite European Union moves to curb contacts and funding for Ankara over the issue.

Turkish Foreign Ministry said today (Tuesday) that the decisions will not affect in the slightest our country’s determination to continue hydrocarbon activities in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Earlier, EU Foreign Ministers suspended negotiations on the Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement and agreed not to hold the Association Council and further meetings of the EU-Turkey high-level dialogues for the time being.
