Qatar Sends Second Shipment Of Free Gas To Egypt
DOHA — Gas-rich Qatar has dispatched a second shipment of free liquefied gas it had pledged to Egypt, a report said, despite Doha’s criticism of Cairo’s deadly crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protesters.
The tanker left “to brotherly Egypt on August 9,” QNA state news agency said in a report late on Monday.
The shipments aim to ease the shortage of energy resources in Egypt during the summer, QNA cited an unnamed foreign ministry official as saying.
“Concerned parties are finalising measures to provide the remaining shipments promised as a gift to the brotherly Egyptian people,” the official said.
