  • Israel’s Energy Minister Karine Elharrar signed this morning in Cairo a trilateral memorandum of understanding with Egypt and with the European Union, enabling Israeli marine-extracted natural gas from the Mediterranean Sea to be exported to Europe through Egypt.
  • Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Saleh Al-Kharabsheh, who spoke right after Elharrar, did not refer directly to Israel, but insisted that progress can be made only by all the members of the forum working together.
  • The understanding signed today in Cairo recognizes the key role that natural gas increasingly plays and will continue to play in coming years in the EU energy markets, on the backdrop of the European goals for zero emission by 2050.
