Due on the divided island of Cyprus on April 15 for an unofficial visit. New Jersey Democratic US Senator Robert Menendez said America won’t tolerate Turkey’s tough stance in the Eastern Mediterranean.
“We made it clear that we will no longer accept Turkey’s aggression in the Eastern Mediterranean region,” the newspaper Phileleftheros quoted Menendez as saying in response to Turkey trying to keep out foreign energy companies – including ExxonMobil – from drilling for oil and gas off the island where it is licensed.
