German Economy Minister Habek linked the failure of the gas deal with Qatar with prices

The failure of the deal for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Germany from Qatar is explained by the price issue, said German Economy Minister Robert Habeck

According to him, the situation is connected with the fact that it is necessary to look for the most advantageous offer.

“That’s the only way it can function. And if Qatar does not provide the most advantageous offer, then companies, including in the context of consumers, will not be mistaken if they choose not the most expensive offer. So they did, ”Khabek explained.


He stressed that it is impossible to talk about the completion of negotiations with Qatar, since there are agreements on energy partnership.


In mid-August, the media drew attention to the fact that the Middle Eastern country supplies LNG to Italy instead of Germany. Deliveries to Germany did not begin, although the agreements were announced back in March.
