Apr 01, 2004 02:00 AM

Syria and Turkey have examined the feasibility of joint energy exploration.
The two countries have been discussing a proposal to explore their joint border for crude oil and natural gas as part of trade cooperation.

Officials said such a project could be feasible when Turkey's military completes the demining of the border with Syria. Defence Minister Vecdi Gonul said Turkey would search for oil in the border area. He said most of the area would be made available to farmers.
Syria has also been searching for gas in the north-eastern region of the country near the Turkish border. The two countries have exchanged trade delegations to explore joint projects.
