Cyprus, Greece and Israel could play an important role in securing the EU’s energy resources, reports Politis.

In the course of discussions on May 22, the European Council examined “the question of a more systematic recourse to on-shore and off-shore indigenous sources of energy,” which could include the building of a gas pipeline linking the three countries to the rest of Europe, explains the daily.

Cypriot President Antonis Anastasiades expressed his ambition to make his country an “energy hub” for Europe.
