The decision on how much of the nation’s natural gas will be allocated for export must be taken within the halls of the Knesset and involve a wide range of political voices, Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz said on Wednesday.

“This is a decision that has multi-generational influence, for which a discussion should be as widespread as possible and involve representatives of all Israeli politicians and not only those who are ministers,” Peretz said, at the Environment of Tomorrow conference in Tel Aviv, hosted by TheMarker and the Paris-based Veolia Environnement SA.
