Yildiz: “I don’t find decision of carrying natural gas belonging to Cyprus from Egypt practicable”

Energy and Natural Resources Minister of Turkey Taner Yildiz stated that he did not find the decision of carrying natural gas belonging to Cyprus from Egypt practicable when he was reminded that the leaders of Greece, Egypt and South Cyprus discussed sharing of energy resources in the Eastern Mediterranean by holding a tripartite summit.

Stating that Egypt is not a consumption country, Yıldız said “It was said that it will be carried as liquefied natural gas (LNG). The cost of LNG is obvious. I don’t approve such a decision which is not feasible.”
