The Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Hala Zawati, said that she hopes to deliver electricity to Lebanon by the end of this year, and that any company that will work on the electricity transmission file will not violate Caesar’s law.
Zawati said in an interview with “Sky News” that she discussed the timetable for restarting the electrical interconnection line between Jordan and Syria to deliver electricity to Lebanon, noting that Lebanon is seeking to finance the electricity transmission plan from the World Bank.
And she stressed that “any company that will work on the file of electricity transmission to Lebanon will not violate Caesar’s law.”
The energy ministers of Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon agreed, last August, to present a plan of action and a timetable for the implementation of the transfer of Egyptian gas to Lebanon, in addition to the transfer of electricity from Jordan through Syria to Lebanese territory.
