Kim Bookyum, Prime Minister of South Korea met with his Qatari counterpart on Sunday in the Middle Eastern country to discuss collaboration in energy supply, agriculture, health, and other sectors, according to his office.
According to the Yonhap news agency, the talks between Kim and Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdul Aziz Al Thani took place as Seoul aims to strengthen energy cooperation with Doha amid concerns that the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine will disrupt energy supply chains.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports from Qatar account for more than a quarter of South Korea’s total. Apart from energy cooperation, the two sides discussed health care, education, and agriculture, as Doha attempts to expand its sectors beyond the oil and gas industry.

Kim has already given Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani a courtesy call.
