The expert assessed the prospects of the construction of the Israeli gas pipeline to EU

The Israeli plans for the construction of the EastMed pipeline will not affect economic cooperation of this country with Russia, the level of which is constantly improving, said RIA Novosti the head of the Russian-Israeli chamber of Commerce Eli gerwitz.

Earlier media reported that the Israeli authorities approved the agreement with Cyprus and Greece to EastMed pipeline, which will start shipping from the Israeli field "Leviathan" and the Cyprus "Aphrodite" in continental Europe. It is planned that it will go of about ten billion cubic meters of gas annually.

In addition, he doubts that the EastMed project will be implemented in the period to 2025. Even if that happens, in his opinion, it will not affect the level of economic cooperation between Israel and Russia.

"The level of economic relations between Russia and Israel now need to be measured in billions of dollars, the amount of which may be subject to external factors, such as coronavirus, and the vector and the attitude. I was in Israel 30 years, the last 22 are engaged in the practice of law, and if not ranks, then expand the conventional "bridge Moscow - tel-Aviv", and such a desire to move forward, as in recent years, I don't remember. Relations are developing rapidly and will flourish further," concludes gerwitz.
