Netanyahu vows to push for gas pipeline
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised Thursday to promote plans for an ambitious Mediterranean undersea natural gas pipeline project in a bid by his country to become a key European energy supplier.
Israel is hoping to export much of its newly discovered natural gas to Europe via a proposed 1,350-mile undersea pipeline to Cyprus and Greece.
“It’s something we’re very excited about,” Netanyahu said on a visit to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city.
Greece and Israel are also planning an undersea electricity cable link and are considering a Mediterranean data cable.
