Petroleum Minister Tarek el Molla discussed on Thursday with his Lebanese counterpart Cesar Abi Khalil ways of boosting bilateral cooperation in the petroleum and gas domains.
In a statement, Molla reiterated distinguished relations binding Egypt with Lebanon, expressing Egypt’s readiness to offer all forms of assistance to Lebanon in the petroleum and gas domains.
Molla said talks tackled regional cooperation in the natural gas domain and Egypt’s role in the eastern Mediterranean gas forum, that was held in January.
Talks also tackled the possibility of training Lebanese cadres in Egyptian training centers.
The Lebanese minister expressed his country’s desire that Egypt would resume pumping natural gas to Lebanon as part of the 2009 contract signed between the two sides.
