Member of Parliament of Jordan to Muhammad Dawama said yesterday in an interview with Jordanian Raya: he and other lawmakers to bring a vote of no confidence in the government if the Ministers will sign the contract for the supply of natural gas to Israel.
About it writes on Thursday, February 11, the website of the newspaper The Jerusalem Post.
The Deputy reported that next week will be a meeting of Ministers with the Parliament, which insisted on 35 of his colleagues. The article says that in early February, the Jordanian branch of the BDS movement calling for a boycott of Israel, revived in September launched a campaign in social networks. They demand to ban the import of gas from Israel, which plans to begin the Jordanian authorities and the company Noble Energy.
Until the end of 2017 the company will have to invest in the development of the field «Leviathan» at least 2 billion dollars, and the gas from the «Leviathan» in Israel is due to commence before the end of 2019. Thus, contrary to the recommendations of the Bank of Israel, specific sanctions for violation of these requirements in the agreement will not be registered.
It should be noted that, with high probability, if the agreement will not be signed, the American company Noble Energy will be served against Israel sued in international arbitration with a good chance of success.
In addition, in this case, the development of the Deposit «Leviathan» will be delayed for many years, and Israel will continue to depend on one of the Tamar field, controlled by the same companies that control the Leviathan.
Refusal to sign the agreement also will minimize the chance of joining the Israeli market search oil and gas other foreign companies.
