TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON FEB 15

Turkish dailies on Friday covered the global Valentine's Day event, Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) and Shell's agreement to explore gas and oil in the Black Sea and the former Turkish President Suleyman Demirel's health condition. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All of the Turkish dailies covered the February 14, Valentine's Day dance aimed to show global solidarity across the world on the issue of violence against women, celebrated in many countries and more than 20 Turkish cities. "Parliament also danced against violence" headlined daily MILLIYET referring to the female Turkish lawmakers who danced together at the parliament building in Ankara in support of the "One billion rising" campaign. "EU dance with Fuele" added daily MILLIYET in regards to Family and Social Policies Minister Fatma Sahin's dance with European Commissioner Stefan Fuele in Brussels to show their support for the event.

Turkish dailies covered TPAO and one of the world's leading energy firms, Shell's deal to explore gas and oil in the western Black Sea. "To search oil in Black Sea" headlined daily YENI SAFAK over the joint venture between TPAO and Shell where Shell has spared a budget of 150 to 200 million dollars for three years.

Most dailies also covered the health of Turkey's 9th President Suleyman Demirel. "The Father in hospital" headlined daily HURRIYET in regards to Demirel who is 88 and has been hospitalized due to a seasonal respiratory infection and currently undergoing treatment in a private hospital in Ankara. "There isn't anything to worry about" said his doctor, according to the daily.
