Turkey invited Israel to build a gas pipeline to Europe

Turkey is gradually turning into the largest "collector" of gas pipelines, through whose territory "blue fuel" is sent to Europe. Therefore, it is not surprising that Ankara, despite the old grievances, suggested that Tel Aviv begin negotiations on the construction of a gas pipeline through which Israel will be able to supply natural gas to Europe.

The Reshet Bet radio, owned by Kol Israel (Voice of Israel), spread the word about this, citing an unnamed Turkish official. For clarity, you need Markthat in 2017 in Israel they really started talking about the construction of a gas pipeline along the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, as we wrote earlier.

Turkey will be happy if Israel rethinks the project for gas supplies to Europe and the gas supply pipeline will go through Turkish territory

- said in a statement.

It is clarified that the Turks object to the construction of the gas pipeline in its current form (draft). What was informed by the Israeli diplomatic mission in Ankara. At the same time, the Turks are “open to dialogue” regarding alternative routes. That is, they want the gas produced by the Israelites on the shelf to go to Europe through Turkey.

It should be recalled that Ankara and Tel Aviv in 2017 already discussed this topic. However, later Israel decided to abandon the joint project. Moreover, the deterioration in relations between Ankara and Tel Aviv happened after Israel began to quickly establish relations with Greece and Cyprus, hoping to lay a gas pipeline through their territory. And the Turks with the Greeks have strained relations for more than a century.

    I think, who, and the Israelis will find the most optimal and profitable route for themselves. The main thing is that they found gas.

    They will not be allowed through Syria. Not for that, ours went there.
    By sea, this is still unrealistic. Great distance, great depths. There are no such technologies.

      Europe is west of Israel, Syria is in the northeast, Turkey is even further - the Israelis themselves will somehow figure out how to deliver gas to the European continent without Muslim Muslim parasites.

        You can’t argue against geography. By land, Syria cannot be avoided. On the left is the sea, on the right (and a very healthy hook) is the ever-boiling Kurdistan. And to the west of Israel is not Europe, but the sea. Deep. Nevermind them, not a gas pipeline.

    Turkey invited Israel to build a gas pipeline to Europe.

    - Yes ... it's just like laughing ... - Why should Israel tie itself to something, or rather ... - just put itself on a chain ... - Besides, the East ... is also "It's very ... for ... oh ..." ... -And pipelines are the "prerogative" of Gazprom ... -The sad example of Gazprom is now just looming before everyone's eyes ... -And the ghost of Russian descendants Gazprom will appear in nightmares ...

    - And if Israel chooses the gas theme, then most likely, it will build factories for the production of "canned food from LNG" and will start selling these "canned foods" ... the Jews will provide Israel with a solid carte blanche for this ...
    - But, all this gas business ... for now ... on the water with a pitchfork ...

    Does Israel itself no longer need gas?

      The reserves of natural gas in explored fields far exceed the needs of Israel itself, why not sell the surplus, are we Jews or where? bully
