ENI, EU Hold Talks On Row With Turkey
From Hurriyet Daily News
Italian energy company Eni has been in touch with the European Union as well as Rome concerning Turkey’s recent warning to review the Italian energy firm’s investments in the country if it goes ahead with plans to explore for natural gas in Greek Cyprus.
“We are always doing what is legitimate according to EU law,” said Leonardi Bellodi, Eni’s senior vice president of public affairs.
Bellodi, who was in Istanbul yesterday to attend the Atlantic Council Energy and Economic Summit, said, “We are a corporation and we always act within state’s jurisdiction.” In response to questions on Turkey’s attitude, Bellodi described Turkey’s statement as a “mild reaction, raising the issue.”
