Egypt Breaches Peace Treaty With Israel and Cancels Natural Gas Export, ‘Egypt Does Not Understand What It Is Doing’

Ampal-American Israel Corporation, a partner in the East Mediterranean Gas Company (EMG), which operates the pipeline, said the Egyptian companies involved had notified EMG they were ‘terminating the gas and purchase agreement.’
