ISLAMABAD, Feb 12 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Friday said that the recently signed agreement with Qatari government for import of Liquified Natural Gas was a breakthrough for Pakistan’s self sufficiency in energy. “The recent landmark LNG Agreement, that has been signed with the Government of Qatar with complete transparency at a very low price, will not only cater for the CNG sector, industrial, commercial and domestic consumers but will also help in reinvigorating country’s non-efficient power generation plants into high efficiency low cost power plants,” he said talking to a group of leading businessmen of the country in a meeting held at the PM House.
