Hariri to Visit Jordan Wednesday
Lebanon’s Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri will visit Jordan next Wednesday for bilateral and regional talks with King Abdullah and other senior officials, reported the Daily Star newspaper Thursday.
"Official talks are due to deal with bilateral relations and regional issues such as the mutual accord on the transport and distribution of gas among Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Jordan," Hariri's office said in a statement.
Ministers of energy and oil from the four countries decided to further study the economic feasibility of a regional gas pipeline deal that was agreed on late January in Cairo.
Jordan's minister of energy, Wael Sabri, said the four ministers, who compose the "higher council" overseeing the implementation of the project, discussed a feasibility study on both a marine and landline for the transportation of Egyptian gas to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria – Albawaba.com
