Greece has begun talks with Israel about transporting natural gas to Europe, Greek Investment Minister Harris Pamboukis told Reuters on Monday.

"The Israelis have found big quantities of offshore gas in the Mediterranean," Pamboukis explained. "We are trying to see how Greece could be seen as a transportation hub and a services center, since it is on a natural road to the Balkans and Europe."

Pamboukis emphasized that these are only exploratory talks, initiated after natural gas was discovered in the Leviathan field, Reuters reported.
