Energy Minister Eli Cohen speaks with his Italian counterpart Gilberto Pichetto Fratin by phone, and discusses the possibility of exporting liquefied natural gas to Italy.

The two also discuss cooperating in the development of maritime renewable energies, a field in which Italy has significant experience compared to Israel.

Cohen thanks Pichetto Fratin for his support for Israel during its war against Hamas.

“Italy is a key ally in our region,” says Cohen, according to the Israeli readout, “and the energy agreement between the countries that will be signed this year will strengthen Israel’s energy stability and independence and increase Israel’s connectivity to Europe.”

Israel and Italy are both members of the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum.
