The project, called the EuroAsia interconnector, is expected to be completed by 2024.
Designed to supply Europe with natural gas from the eastern Mediterranean, it has been in the planning for several years.
“And we are confident that when materialised, they will have an added practical and geostrategic value for the Eastern Mediterranean and the European Union,” said Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides.
He added: Our three countries can and should be part of the solution of Europe’s quest for diversified, secure, and cleaner energy supply from the Levantine corridor.
Next, the three Ministers will meet in Nicosia at the end of the year.
