6:18 am
went missing more than a week ago. and you and refugee agency reports as the number of people displaced around the world has risen to record a 100000000. the biggest factor, the moment is russia's war in ukraine. us federal reserve has announced the interest rate rise of north point 75 percent to try to come. rising inflation increases the biggest in almost 3 decades. egypt and israel will export more natural gas to the e. u. european commission. chief ursula on the lion describe the deal as a special moment and the confidence efforts to win itself off russian energy. but smith reports from western muslim, ah, israel sits on about 0 point one percent of global gas reserves. not much, but the european union is looking everywhere it can to reduce its reliance on russia, gasoline. so egypt already taking in 26 percent of israel's gas production will start liquefying more at its 2 mediterranean plants. it'll trim just
6:19 am
a few percent of the 40 percent of gas, the e u bies from russia. but if it's a quick fix, it's not going to store the whole thing. i mean, if you look at the spare capacity in the system on b, it's fairly in digits i, it's something like 678 percent of what we are receiving. it is a small step, but we need other steps. we didn't know exploration net more infrastructure could be bit, ah, israel had frozen gas exploration as it tried to meet renewable energy targets. but the search for alternatives to russian fuel has offered these railey government to lucrative an opportunity to turn down. the e. u is also committed to moving away from fossil fuels. at the signing ceremony in cairo, the e u commission president suggested there was long term interest in partnering with countries to its south and east. it is for us, very important also to look forward into the new forms of energy. and these are,
