Pakistan in talks with Russia over import of LNG supplies


Amid an energy shortage, Pakistan is reportedly seeking liquified natural gas (LNG) supplies from Russia, revealed Pakistan’s Ambassador to Moscow Shafqat Ali Khan on Monday.

While speaking to the Russian news agency TASS, the diplomat said the two countries were currently in talks over the matter and pipeline gas supplies could be the solution to Pakistan’s rapidly-increasing energy shortage.

That being said, due to the lack of necessary infrastructure for pipeline gas supplies, Pakistan is currently focusing on its “immediate needs” related to LNG.

“We have established contact with the Russian side, and we are, of course, very much interested in the procurement of LNG.
