Meanwhile, Al-Khasawneh praised the ongoing cooperation between Egypt and Jordan in the field of natural gas and electrical interconnection and requested that the electrical interconnection capacity between the two countries be increased to two thousand megawatts instead of the current 500 megawatts.
