Rumors in the press, according to which Italy is allegedly negotiating with Turkey the terms for the exploitation of Libya’s oil resources following the Memorandum of Understanding between Ankara and Tripoli on the delimitation of continental platforms, are unfounded.

Italy has believed for long that the exploitation of the energy resources in the Mediterranean area should be seen as an opportunity to be seized through the cooperation of all Mediterranean States.
