Pakistan to continue import of LNG from Qatar

A Pakistani cabinet minister says Islamabad will continue to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar under a 15-year agreement, despite the severing of diplomatic ties with Qatar by Saudi Arabia and some other countries.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the federal minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources, said Qatar and Pakistan last year signed a $1 billion agreement, under which Qatar's Liquefied Gas Company Limited will sell LNG from 2016 to year 2031 to state-run Pakistan State Oil.

He said since no sanctions have been imposed on Qatar by the United Nations, Pakistan and Qatar were bound to abide by the agreement.

Qatar has released an initial report into the alleged hack of its state-run news agency, an incident which helped spark a diplomatic crisis between the energy-rich country and Arab nations.

The Qatari Interior Ministry said late Wednesday that the website of the Qatar News Agency was initially hacked in April with "high techniques and innovative methods."

It said hackers installed a file and then published a fake news item attributed to Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, just after midnight May 24.

The ministry did not say who it suspected carried out the attack. It also thanked the FBI and the British National Commission for Combating Crime for assisting it in its investigation.

The alleged fake news item, which had Sheikh Tamim making controversial comments on Iran and Israel, immediately was picked up by Saudi and Emirati media, laying the groundwork for the crisis that began Monday (05.06.2017.)

Kuwait's emir has traveled to Qatar and met that country's leader as part of his efforts to mediate an end to a crisis that's seen Arab nations cut ties to the energy-rich country and attempt to isolate it.

Kuwait's Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah was met planeside by Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, when he arrived on Wednesday night.

The two held talks, though details of their discussions were not released. Sheikh Sabah earlier Wednesday traveled to Dubai where he met with Abu Dhabi's Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who also serves as prime minister and vice president of the UAE.

Sheikh Sabah also has traveled to Saudi Arabia in his efforts.

'MOE guy' Ong Ye Kung breaks electoral rules, takes down video on Sembawang hours later

Who knew Minister of Education Ong Ye Kung was the sort to break rules?  Ong — also a Sembawang GRC MP — uploaded a seemingly innocuous video to his Facebook page this afternoon (July 2) titled «The 'MOE guy' vs The Sembawang TripAdvisor». In it, he meets a young boy Jony, who lives in his constituency Sembawang GRC. The two talk about what's good there — wonton mee at Blk 313 Sembawang Crescent, says Ong — the places in Sembawang that Jony likes, and whether Ong gets free food at said coffeeshop, since y'know he's the guy «in charge of that area». Ong then shares with Jony about the food scheme for lower income-residents, and the many changes that have taken place in the GRC. However, when Ong brings up Build-To-Order HDB flats, he loses little Jony. As Ong talks about getting married and moving into a flat, the boy blinks, widens his eyes, and takes a sneaky glance at his watch. «Erm, you tell me all of these for what?» he asks Ong. «I'm explaining all these to you so that you know if you support us, these are all the things that we will deliver, and make life better for you,» Ong says.
