ATHENS, Greece (AP) The leaders of Cyprus, Greece and Israel plan to sign an agreement early in the new year for the building of the eastern Mediterranean natural gas pipeline, the Greek prime ministers office announced Sunday.
The agreement will be signed in Athens on Jan. 2 by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Cypriot President Nikos Anastasiades and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
As now planned, the pipeline will run across the Mediterranean from Israels Levantine Basin offshore gas reserves to the Greek island of Crete and the Greek mainland, and then to Italy.

Turkey ain’t gonna like this
Little known fact: the last Roman historian was a Greek from Antioch who spoke and wrote in Latin.
Ammianus Marcellinus was the last great historian of antiquity. A pagan living in a Christian world.
Indeed. Nor Russia. Nor the Gulf monarchies.
Many classical Roman works are actually by Greeks and other non-Latins who were Roman citizens and so had Romanized names.
thank you and congratulations, George Papadopoulos. i believe you were a pioneer and early promoter of this idea. may God bless you and your wife.
Yes, the Obama Deep State seems to have targeted George Papadopoulos over this (he was promoting this idea).
They waited to invite turkeys pArticipation. But the Turkish dictator guy is too hostile
yes. this constitutes one of our real wins against the deep state. they (the globalist left domestic and foreign) really didn’t want this. it’s nice to be on offense.
“thank you and congratulations, George Papadopoulos. i believe you were a pioneer and early promoter of this idea. may God bless you and your wife.”
Wow, pretty serious notch on his belt. The article says that 10% of Europe’s natural gas demand will be met with this pipeline, so it’s not exactly a PEX hose in someone’s attic (piece of crap, they are).
Not at all.
...the pipeline will run across the Mediterranean from Israels Levantine Basin offshore gas reserves to the Greek island of Crete and the Greek mainland, and then to Italy.
Future news -- the European Commission bans the use of natural gas, would rather EU citizens eat their food raw as they freeze to death than to accept the existence of Israel. /jk
That’s right. The straight between Israel and Cyprus belonged to the Palestinians from time immemorial. The fart bubbles of a million bathers over the millennia accumulated and created this resource for Israelis to exploit. Granted, the bathers were trying to invade Cyprus and tear down Limenos Castle, but Cyprus was occupied territory, too, and most of it still is. Byzantine/shmyzantine. Greek/shmeek./s
I’ve tried to understand Josephus in the original Greek, but it’s much more complicated linguistically than I can manage. Aristophanes is easier and fun.
I feel the post cold war wars from Yugoslavia forward including what Al-Qaeda and ISIS are doing are all for pipeline routes control.
That would explain Darfur and Mogadishu, all right. Darfur has oil. Mogadishu has access to the Red Sea, and is right across from the Arabian Peninsula.
