Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) — An oil and gas exploration agreement Turkey will sign with Royal Dutch Shell Plc next week is not “a political move”, Turkey’s Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said.

The accord for exploration on land and in sea, including the Mediterranean, is planned to be signed on Nov. 23 or Nov. 24, Yildiz said in televised comments in Istanbul today.
