Israel Radio has reported that Qatar’s prime minister, Sheikh Hamad Ben Jassem, held a secret meeting with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, in London.

Diplomatic sources in London said that the Qatari prime minister arrived in his private jet from Paris and met with Netanyahu.

“The meeting lasted for an hour and was held under heavy security arrangements taken by the British authority.”

The sources added that a few hours after the meeting, Qatar expressed its willingness to supply natural gas to Israel instead of Egypt.

Israel Radio also described Qatar as an important player in the regional security arrangements, working closely with US intelligence agencies.
