Ahead of Tuesday’s trilateral summit between leaders of Greece, Israel and Cyprus in Nicosia, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said they will discuss the feasibility of constructing a gas pipeline leading to Italy.

“I will discuss with them a series of issues, first and foremost the feasibility of laying a joint Israeli-Cypriot-Greek gas pipeline to Italy,” he told his cabinet on Sunday, adding that the export of Israeli gas to Western Europe could make a very significant contribution to the Israeli economy.

Netanyahu, his Greek counterpart Alexis Tsipras and Cyprus President will meet for the fourth time on Tuesday.
