US in talks with gas exporters to replace RussiaТs exports to EU

WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (PRIME) -- The U.S. is in talks with gas exporters to find an alternative supplier of gas to Europe to replace Russia, Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the White House, told reporters at a briefing late on Wednesday.

УWeТre talking to a range of countries and suppliers,Ф Psaki said when asked whether Qatar may become a new major gas supplier to Europe.

Earlier, on January 30, chief of the E.U. diplomacy Josep Borrell said that the E.U. expects the U.S., Qatar and Azerbaijan to compensate for the volume of gas in the event of reduced supplies from Russia. U.S. administration officials also previously said they were looking for alternative sources of natural gas for Europe in case of disruptions in exports from Russia. They mentioned Qatar among the possible suppliers.

Moscow had stated multiple times that Russia has always fulfilled its contractual obligations to supply gas to Europe flawlessly, never giving any reason to doubt its reliability.
