CAIRO: Is­rael’s En­ergy Min­is­ter Yu­val Steinitz ar­rived in Cairo yes­ter­day to at­tend a nat­u­ral gas con­fer­ence in a rare visit to Egypt by an Is­raeli of­fi­cial, air­port sources said. Steinitz’s visit came at the in­vi­ta­tion of the Egyp­tian gov­ern­ment, Is­rael’s en­ergy min­istry said. The Is­raeli min­is­ter was set to at­tend a re­gional fo­rum on nat­u­ral gas, which has be­come a ma­jor eco­nomic and strate­gic is­sue in the east­ern Mediter­ranean. The “de­vel­op­ment of gas fields has geopo­lit­i­cal and geostrate­gic value,” Steinitz told Is­raeli army ra­dio ahead of the trip.
