Israel Officially Joins Regional Gas Forum
The cabinet authorized Israel’s membership in the new East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF) on Tuesday, after resolving a dispute between ministers on the matter.
“The vision became a reality!” Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz tweeted, pointing out that he and his Egyptian counterpart Tarek al-Mulla initiated the EMGF.
“The blessing of gas leads us to historic cooperation with Arab and European states that will only broaden, along with contracts to export natural gas to Jordan and Egypt worth tens of billions of dollars, and more to come,” Steinitz added. (JPost / VFI News)
“God, we ask that you continue to provide Israel with what she needs to thrive in the global economy.”
