Qatar ruler in Czech Republic to talk business, gas exports


PRAGUE (AP) — Qatar’s emir is paying his first visit to the Czech Republic, for business talks expected to include a potential deal for deliveries of Qatari liquefied natural gas. He was formally greeted by Czech President Milos Zeman at the Prague Castle Wednesday. Among other issues, talks are expected to focus on deliveries of liquified natural gas from Qatar, the world’s biggest LNG exporter. The Czech Republic, like other European nations, is seeking alternative sources for fossil fuels to replace its former dependence on Russian gas following the Kremlin’s war on Ukraine. During his three-day visit, the emir is also expected to meet some of the leaders from more than 40 countries who are attending a summit in Prague on Thursday.
