Doha (Qatar): The Amir of Qatar on Wednesday assured Bangladesh of providing all sorts of facilities to Bangladesh regarding larger supply of LNG from his country.
“I promise you that I, being the Amir, will provide all sorts of facilities to you as you are a friendly country,” Amir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani was quoted as telling Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina during a meeting at Amiri Diwan in Doha.
The two leaders also discussed different issues of bilateral cooperation on energy, business, investment, Bangladeshi manpower as well as Muslim Ummah and development of Bangladesh
“This meeting was held in a very warm environment,” said Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen at a press briefing here.
About energy, the Amir said the negotiation of signing a new contract over the larger supply of energy from Qatar to Bangladesh remains pending for a few months.
Momen said it (the promise) is a big achievement for Bangladesh, adding that this fresh contract might be signed anytime soon.
Now Bangladesh is importing some 40 containers of energy that means 1.8-2.5 MTA as per a 15-year contract signed in 2017. But now Bangladesh seeks the larger supply of LNG from Qatar.
