    [03] Euro-Mediterranean energy conference concludes in Athens

    21/05/2003 23:51:29

    The third Euro-Mediterranean Conference of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership in the field of energy concluded in Athens on Wednesday, unanimously passing a new Declaration of Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.

    The declaration, as Greeces Development Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos said, titled ?The Athens Declaration?, is the new political framework reaffirming European and Mediterranean nations resolve to cooperate for the establishment of a genuine energy policy.

    Special reference was made to the connection of Greeces natural gas network with Turkey, which is to be concluded in 2005, as well as to relevant discussions between Greece and Italy.

    Tsohatzopoulos, who chaired the meeting, said during a press conference that Greece was transforming into a European energy hub for the entire European and Mediterranean regions.

    The ?Athens Declaration? also refers to Israel and the Palestinian Authoritys intention to promote bilateral cooperation on energy. To this end, a tripartite technical working team is to be set up, with the participation of representatives from Israel, Palestine and the EU.

    EU Transport and Energy Commissioner Loyola de Palacio, who expressed satisfaction at the development, said the setting up of the working team was decided in order to consolidate energy plans of mutual interest to both Israel and Palestine. She stressed that the team is also open to participation by other states.

    ?Energy would be the basis on which we will build stability and peace across the Euro-Mediterranean region,'' she said.
