Egypt to be a bridge for electricity between the region and EU: Sisi
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the EU Climate Action and Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete discussed issues of the environment, climate change, the volume of development in the electricity sector, and the mechanisms of intensifying cooperation between Egypt and the European Union on Tuesday.
Sisi stressed that the government has adopted a comprehensive and ambitious strategy to develop the electricity system in full, which qualifies it to become a bridge for the transfer of electricity between the countries of the region and EU countries in the framework of the projects of electric linkage.
Sisi said that Egypt was one of the first countries that expressed their willingness to cooperate with neighboring countries in the field of gas, in light of its established infrastructure of liquefaction plants, ports and gas pipeline networks, supported by distinguished political relations with the various countries of the region, as well as enjoying political and security stability stemming from a strong popular will.
