    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 23 - Egyptian Petroleum Minister Tarek El Molla said on Friday at Med Dialogues in Rome that Italy is a country that Egypt wants to approach because it is "Europe's energy gateway".

    "At the start of this year we signed a memorandum of understanding on energy with the European Union that will make Egypt a considerable energy supplier in alternative to existing suppliers," said El Molla.

    "With the untapped potential natural gas we have in the Mediterranean", nearby countries "need to use Egyptian infrastructure" and "we wish to cooperate" he said.(ANSAmed).
