DAMASCUS, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Syria's Oil Minister Bassam Tohme announced on Saturday that his country will be taking a certain amount of Egypt's gas as part of the agreement to facilitate the flow of gas from Egypt to Lebanon through Syria, according to the state news agency SANA.

The minister said this would help with the electricity generating process in Syria, which is suffering from the lack of electricity as a result of the sanctions and the U.S. occupation of key gas and oil fields in eastern Syria.

This agreement has taken place during the recent visit of the Lebanese ministerial delegation to Syria, during which Syria agreed to facilitate the flow of gas and electricity from Egypt and Jordan to Lebanon.

The gas will be pumped through the Arab Gas Pipeline (AGP), a 1,200 km-long trans-regional gas export pipeline built to carry natural gas from Egypt to Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Enditem
