Qatar’s top diplomat starts 2-day visit to Sudan


Sudanese FM welcome Qatar's counterpart at Khartoum airport on 23 May 2021 (ST photo)May 23, 2021 (KHARTOUM) - The Qatari Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs arrived in Khartoum on Sunday night in a two-day visit to Sudan.

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani who arrived from Libya was welcomed at Khartoum airport by his Sudanese counterpart Mariam al-Mahdi.

In a statement Sunday, the Foreign Ministry said that Al Thani’s visit aims to "strengthen bilateral relations between Sudan and Qatar."

He will meet the Chairman of the Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, his deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo "Hemedti" and Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok.

Earlier this year, al-Burhan and Hemetti travelled to Doha and held talks with the Qatari officials.

in April 2019, the transitional military council declined to receive the Qatari top diplomat, but later said it was due to a mistake by the undersecretary for foreign affairs.

During the Paris Conference for Sudan, the Qatari Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said his country is committed to building community institutions and providing returnees who regain their villages with means of life and ready to honour the commitment taken in the Doha donor conference for Darfur of April 2013.

The Qatari official further added that his government would consider investment opportunities in various sectors of the Sudanese economy.

Following the signing of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur in July 2011, Qatar established 14 villages including educational, health and police facilities.
