US suspects Saudi of slowing down power transfer to Lebanon

U.S. ambassador Dorothy Shea has been reportedly quoted as saying that "some parties" have been obstructing the transfer of gas and electricity from Egypt and Jordan to Lebanon, al-Akhbar newspaper said.

Informed sources have told al-Akhbar, in remarks published Wednesday, that they suspect that KSA might be the party obstructing the deal.

The daily said that according to sources Shea is embarrassed of the delay in the implementation of the energy plan, after Hizbullah had successfully imported Iranian diesel half a year ago.

It added that the U.S. has been making efforts to speed up the loan's funding and that Syria is logistically ready.

Egypt, for its part, has been hesitating over disagreements regarding the quantity of gas and guarantees that the IMF had requested from the country.
