    The decision about imports of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States has not been taken yet, and the LNG price should be competitive to the gas prices from other countries, such as Qatar and Russia, according to Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — The decision about imports of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States has not been taken yet, and the LNG price should be competitive to the gas prices from other countries, such as Qatar and Russia, Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski told RIA Novosti in an interview.

    "It’s not decided yet to import gas from the United States. Couple of months ago we received one or two tankers with liquid gas from the United States, it was a pilot technical project, just to prove that there is a technical possibility to import gas from the United States. It was a successful project, but now we are just waiting for the terms and conditions of the contract, future contract," Waszczykowski said.

    "We will, we are eager to, we are inclined to import gas from the United States on the condition that there is a price, which is competitive to the gas coming the other sources, like from Qatar or from Russia. So far the gas coming from the United States is more expensive. But if they put on the table the contract, which is competitive to the gas importing from Qatar or from other regions, we can consider this," the diplomat added.
