I worked on the new the new West Nile Delra Project at Idcut and refurbishment of an existing plant there. There was talk of piping gas from the Aphrodite' field to the Zohr field and then onshore to Idkut. Where there's plenty of process capacity.
Egyptians have no love for Turkey and favour Cyprus.
It would also save Cyprus billions of dollars building the infrastructure required to treat the gas. Prior to the massive offshore gas finds the plants at Idcut more or less stood idle.

That's interesting, why should that be, Jim?

Possibly the income from the gas?

even though the ottaman sultans are gone , I think sore feelings towards their global politics still remain in some places

Islam has as many variants as Christianity. Many hate others as much as they hate non-Muslims.

Mouse was spot on, it goes back to the Ottoman Empire and how the Egyptians were treated.

The comment under the article seems very sensible and advantageous for all concerned. However, as per usual, politics gets in the way...

I watched a subtitled Turkish series on you tube " Kosem" whilst it was a dramatization most of the historical events were correct from the research i did on google. It was a fascinating insight into an area and period of history I previously knew nothing of. For example i always assumed the harem was just a group of girls kept under lock and key for the pleasure of the sultan, it was so much more , it was a powerful and large gear in the scheme of things. A teenage girl was kidnapped from a Greek island and she became the most powerful woman the ottoman empire ever saw ! I only watched about 40 episodes of about 2 hours 30mins each . I think it runs to 60 episodes.

Turkey supports the Muslim brotherhood, Egypt is very anti the muslim brotherhood, that is one of the main causes of friction , along with Turkeys expansion policy's in Libya and other north African countrys

Just bad blood between the two countries for centuries and as you say, the Muslim Brotherhood is another bone of contention. Both countries also look on themselves as the main player in the region.
