Turkey once again showed its decisiveness on the Cyprus issue, this time from the United States. The American authorities questioning Turkey's authority in its searches for natural gas in the Mediterranean were given the message that "That both sides are not defined as having equal shared rights to the natural gas as well as equal distribution of the profits is not legitimate," by Energy Minister Taner Yıldız. The Turkish council also made it known that Turkey would not contract companies that work together with the South Cyprus Greek government.
LNG in 2016 UNLIKELY
Another topic at hand in the talks was the importing of liquefied natural gas desired from the United States (LNG). Defending the high prices at which the U.S. sells natural gas to Turkey by stating that they will be increasing domestic prices as well, the United States stated that short term LNG sales were impossible. "Our demand is still valid. They just stated that due to other extraneous situations it would be difficult for them to provide us with LNG in 2016," said The Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yıldız.
