Polish presidential couple to visit Qatar

Poland’s President Andrzej Duda and First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda are set to pay a visit to Qatar over the weekend, with gas trade and energy security high on the agenda, officials have said.

The president’s foreign policy aide Jakub Kumoch told the media that Qatar was one of Poland’s main suppliers of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and that its role "is expected to rise,” the state PAP news agency reported. 

“Qatar is one of the biggest producers and exporters of LNG,” Kumoch added, “the type of gas Poland has focused on by building the Świnoujście terminal and expanding the whole network of ports and gas transmission infrastructure.”

Kumoch said the president’s visit was especially important “given the rising prices of gas on international markets and the blackmail that is happening near our borders."

He said “Moldova was subjected to blackmail recently, and Ukraine could, too, sooner or later.”

Poland’s supplies of gas are secure, Kumoch emphasised, but "we want to make sure our partners have that security as well so that they cannot be terrorised.”

Meetings in Qatar

While in Qatar, the Polish president is due to meet for talks with Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and Prime Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, PAP reported. In addition to energy issues, the meetings are expected to focus on the Belarus border crisis.

Kumoch told reporters that Qatari leaders “fully understand Warsaw’s position” on the crisis, namely that Poland is helping protect people from the Middle East from being “brutally and cynically deceived by the regime of Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko.”

Duda is also scheduled to attend a Polish-Qatari business roundtable “to discuss LNG, but also potential Qatari investment in exploration of alternative sources of energy,” Kumoch said, as quoted by PAP.
