PressTv: Egypt says gas imports from Israel possible
Egypt says importing gas from Israel is a possibility as the country is plagued with its worst energy crisis in decades.
Answering to a question about the prospects of the country resorting to gas imports from Israel, Egyptian Oil Minister Sharif Ismail said on Wednesday, “Anything can happen.”
He added, “Whatever achieves the best interests of Egypt, and of the Egyptian economy and the role of Egypt in the region... will determine the decision to import gas from Israel.”
A gas export deal between Cairo and Tel Aviv was terminated by Egypt’s state-run gas company, EGAS, following the ouster of the country’s dictator, Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
