Qatar will continue supplying Europe with gas: Minister


Qatar will continue supplying Europe with gas, Minister of State for Energy Affairs Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi told CNN in an interview aired on Friday as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has raised fears of supply disruptions.

“From a business perspective, we do not choose sides,” said Al-Kaabi, who is also president and chief executive of state-owned oil and gas group Qatar Energy, commenting on the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

In a separate interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Al-Kaabi said that it would take years for Europe to reduce dependence on Russia for gas, adding such a step required careful planning and took years to implement.—Zawya News
