New Delhi, Mar 23 (ANI): Qatar's Deputy Premier and Minister of Energy and Industry, Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here on Monday.

The two reportedly discussed issues ranging from mutual cooperation to economic, commercial and energy ties between India and Qatar.

Earlier, Abdullah al-Attiyah, had said that Qatar is negotiating to supply India additional four million tonnes a year of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from 2013.

The price is yet to be decided.

India wanted to import additional 300,000 tonnes of LNG this year.

The additional supply would be imported at the Dahej terminal of Petronet LNG and the Dabhol terminal of GAIL India, which is likely to be commissioned later this year.

Qatar is already supplying 7.5 million tonnes of LNG a year.

With the third-largest gas reserves in the world, Qatar is the world's largest exporter of LNG. (ANI)
