ISLAMABAD — Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi Saturday said two Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) vessels arrived at Karachi Port Qasim.

The minister appreciated Port Qasim Authority team for outstanding performance, "for the first

time, we've been able to berth two LNG vessels in one tide."

The minister said Port Qasim Authority was also about to start night navigation in a couple of weeks. "Once that starts, the port chocking issue will be addressed," he added.

On Friday, Federal Minister for Petroleum Ghulam Sarwar Khan remarked that the LNG projects cannot be shut, but can only be reviewed after 10 years.

Talking to newsmen in Islamabad, the minister extended the support of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led the federal government to the private sector for importing LNG.

The government will help the private sector in importing LNG in every possible way, he added.
