Qatari diplomat threatened the EU with a revision of gas agreements with further promotion of the topic of "corruption component of the 2022 World Cup"

As international experts at various levels predicted, immediately after the end of the World Cup in Qatar, “accented threats” rained down on this state in connection with “suspicions of a corruption component” in obtaining the right to host a major tournament. Recall that earlier in Europe, accusations of corruption in this regard have already been brought forward by several officials (European parliamentarians), including representatives of Italy.


Now, according to the Middle East press, Qatar is being threatened with a comprehensive investigation "which will affect many MEPs involved in a likely corrupt deal."

In particular, it is indicated that Qatar may be denied access to any contacts with members of the European Parliament "until the end of the proceedings." Diplomatic functionality may also be limited.

In this regard, Qatar says that they do not intend to turn a blind eye to such threats. Official Doha made it clear that if the Europeans are too active in terms of trying to declare the 2022 World Cup corrupt, then Qatar will revise its gas supply agreements with them. The French press writes that such a statement was made by a Qatari diplomat, but his name has not yet been released.

In the material of European reporters, it is reported that the Qatari diplomat recalled the supply of gas from Qatar to Belgium, where a corruption scandal is actively unfolding related to the alleged illegality of Doha's obtaining the right to host the main football tournament of the 4th anniversary. It was noted that if Europe chooses partnership relations, then relations should remain as such. Playing behind-the-scenes games can lead to "a serious response, including on a gas deal."

        And I think money will prevail ... big money ... if you put it on the paw of the European commissioners ... the only question is their quantity.

        The main thing is politics and LGBT, and only then there will be football, about which everyone has forgotten.

      Let's approach the question from the other side - what is more convenient to heat the furnaces of power plants and enterprises - gas or football? So the question dissolves in a gas haze by itself wink

      Throughout human history, wars have begun (and continued) over resources. Both minerals and up to carbons at present. Whoever has these resources, he rules. So it's all about gas. wink

    It seems that the current European leaders "have gone crazy" or vice versa - they competently and consistently achieve the complete de-industrialization of Europe.
    Let's make America great again!

      We also had the slogan "Catch up and overtake."
      So you can overtake in at least two ways - either run faster yourself, or trip your opponent.

      America cannot run faster, the belly and thighs are thick. That's why I chose the second method. Ditch the industry of Europe, weaken, as far as possible, China - and there, you see, against the general background, and again you can talk about your "greatness".

      And, I must say, not bad so far America and Europe are doing well. The Germans are boasting that they launched a floating LNG plant. Well done!
      If only the Americans hadn't blown up the Nord Streams, they wouldn't have had to spend money on that plant in order, in the end, to buy American gas at exorbitant prices. We would live on our gas and the industry would not have fled to the same America.

      And now they will quarrel with the Arabs (I alone guess who is throwing kerosene into the fire in Europe there?) - so America will buy gas from the Arabs and resell it to Europe.

        And on whose technologies the plant was built and who warmed their hands on it? ))

    Qatar can already start reviewing gas supplies. Europeans will not stop. The owner told them, but they themselves are without brakes and brains

    Everything is natural - they fulfill the order of the owner.

    The EU has even got Qatar. First, with their LGBT encroachments and claims at the championship, then wanting to shove Zelensky with his groans before the final, now corruption. It would be great if Qatar fulfills its promises, because. Europeans will unwind the scandal anyway.

    Qatar should not abandon gas trade with the EU, but an anti-corruption surcharge on gas should be included in the price, 40 percent. Let them rejoice.
    To be honest, everything is lining up for the third world war. Europe, devastated by the war, where it will try to move, whom it is not the United States that is trying to blame for everything.

    Well, yes, yes ... And this is some kind of snuffy Qatar, which you can’t even find on the map ... But the Great Mighty and Immense Russia endured everything during the exposure of Rodchenkov. Humiliation, insults... It's sad...

    The author should at least somehow explain to the reader, what is the connection between the European Parliament and the World Cup?
