The Lebanese Minister of Energy and Water Walid Fayad met on Monday with his Qatari counterpart, Saad Sherida, to discuss the possibility of Qatar providing Lebanon with electricity.
The energy crisis seems to worsen by the day, even in the Lebanese capital where residents are barely getting 2 hours per day electricity from the government-run Electricity du Liban (EDL).
The meeting with the Qatari Minister of Energy took place in Doha, Qatar, during the 7th General Conference Of the Arab Union Of Electricity, which started on March 20th and will end on March 23rd.
The purpose of this conference is to identify the energy problems in the Arab countries and management solutions.
Qatar and Lebanon have always had mutual cooperative ties, and more so since the Lebanese multiple-crises. Unlike several of the Arab Gulf states, Qatar has not severed its relationship with Lebanon and continues to seek to support it.
