Greece, Cyprus, Israel vow to boost energy cooperation
 

Athens: Greece, Cyprus and Israel have pledged in Greek capital Athens on Tuesday to strengthen cooperation in the energy sector in the wake of the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

“Diversifying gas supplies has become a top priority,” Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias said after a trilateral meeting of Foreign Affairs Ministers, Xinhua news agency reported.

The conflict in Ukraine “stands to change the structure of the European and Middle Eastern energy markets,” said Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

He added, “There are risks here, but there are also opportunities which we must examine together.”

The three countries “can and should be part of the solution for Europe’s quest for diversified, secure and cleaner energy (gas) supply from the Levantine corridor (in the Eastern Mediterranean),” Cyprus’ Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said.
