Turkey criticizes joint statement following Cairo trilateral summit

Turkey has criticized a joint statement issued by Greece, Cyprus and Egypt in Cairo Tuesday, saying it contains "baseless claims" against Ankara.
The three countries urged Turkey to "end its provocative actions" in the Eastern Mediterranean, including exploring for oil in Cyprus' territorial waters, which they called "a breach of international law."

Eni, Total join for another gas search license off Cyprus

Cyprus' energy minister says a consortium composed of energy companies Total of France and Eni of Italy has been licensed to explore for natural gas deposits in another area off Cyprus' southern coast.

Georgios Lakkotrypis says the two companies have an equal share in a new block into which a gas deposit that Eni discovered in an adjacent block last year is believed to extend.
