Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is meeting with Cypriot President Nikos Christodoulides at Cyprus’s Presidential Palace in Nicosia.

Netanyahu is expected to discuss options for moving forward with a long-stalled plan to transport Mediterranean gas for distribution in Europe.

Chief among the options are an Israeli, Cypriot and Greek-backed Eastern Mediterranean pipeline, and alternatively, a pipeline from Israel to Cyprus, where gas will be liquified and shipped onward to Europe.

Additional options include involving Turkey or using offshore liquefaction terminals by Israel’s gas fields.

The prime minister will meet with his Greek counterpart tomorrow , and then participate in a trilateral meeting with both Cypriot and Greek leaders.
