    TEL AVIV - Israel has started pumping natural gas from its maritime reservoir to Egypt, implementing a recent historic cooperation agreement between the two countries, according to a rare joint statement issued by the Egyptian and Israeli energy ministries. The statement called the event an ''important development useful for the interests of both countries''. It is the first time that Israel becomes an energy provider. The gas comes from the large Leviathan reservoir off the Israeli coast near the other installation of Tamar. Last month, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz signed the permits describing the entire operation as an ''historic milestone for the State of Israel''.
