Turkey says has information that Exxon ship heading for east Mediterranean

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey has received information that an Exxon Mobil ship is heading towards the east Mediterranean for oil and gas exploration, President Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman said on Wednesday, amid a row between Ankara and Cyprus on the issue.

Ibrahim Kalin told a news conference Ankara would continue to preserve its rights concerning hydrocarbon exploration in the region. Last month Turkish military maneuvers prevented a vessel charted by Italy’s state-controlled Eni reaching an area Cyprus has licensed for drilling.
