Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is hosting the fifth Israel-Greece-Cyprus summit with Cypriote President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the National Cyber Directorate and the Carasso Science Park in Beersheba. The summit, focused on cyber and innovation, will see the leaders discuss "regional strategic issues including the plan to lay a gas pipeline from Israel to Europe and additional cooperation projects between the countries," Netanyahu's office said in a statement.

At a business conference on Wednesday, Netanyahu stressed the importance of cooperation with the countries and the benefits of the natural gas line.

"Tomorrow I will again host our annual summit meeting with Greece and Cyprus. We want to lay a gas pipeline from Israel to Cyprus, Crete, [mainland] Greece, Italy and [the rest of] Europe. This will turn Israel into a player in the global energy field; all signs indicate that it could run forward. This will, of course, strengthen our diplomatic capability which, to the same extent, of course, is also strengthening the economy and the military, because they are all related," he said.
