Washington declares its support for the energy link between Libya and Greece

The US State Department announced Washington’s openness to the possibility of connecting energy resources between Greece and Libya, according to the project previously announced by Libya.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said resource development in the eastern Mediterranean should strengthen cooperation to ensure sustainable energy security throughout the region.

In statements released by the Macedonian Athens News Agency, Price highlighted continued support for energy projects, especially electricity interconnections, which help prepare for the clean energy transition.

It is noteworthy that the head of the Libyan National Oil Corporation, Farhat bin Kadara, said in October last year that his country was studying the possibility of building two gas pipelines with Greece and the Egyptian city of Damietta.
