Netanyahu in Cyprus to sign pacts on joint natural gas pipeline

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu flew to Nicosia Tuesday to conclude trilateral energy cooperation accords with Cyprus and Greece – in particular the natural gas pipeline project connecting Israel, Cyprus, Greece and Italy, known as EastMed. After his one-on-one meeting with Netanyahu, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades welcomed Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at an official ceremony. This was followed by a bilateral meeting between the former and the latter. They were also due to sign agreements and memoranda of understanding – both bilateral and a trilateral – on ways to save the sea from pollution from maritime accidents and cooperation in new technologies. Netanyahu was accompanied by Minister of Technology Ofir Akunis, Minister of Energy and Water Resources Yuval Steinitz and Minister of Communications Ayoob Kara.

    There is an open issue with Turkey on these gas fields, and this is amplified by the craziness of their actual president.

    Errdogan is not only crazy, but also very aggressive too. I guess we will hear more about Cyprus gas fields shortly.
