DUBAI – Jordan hopes to start supplying Lebanon with electricity by the end of the year, Sky News Arabia reported on Thursday, citing an interview with the kingdom’s energy minister, Hala Zawati.

She said Lebanon is seeking financing from the World Bank for this project, Sky reported.

Under an agreement announced last month, Egypt will supply natural gas to Lebanon via a pipeline that passes through Jordan and Syria to help boost Lebanon’s electricity output. The deal is part of a U.S.-backed plan to alleviate Lebanon’s power shortages.
