Meeting of the EU – Qatar Parliamentary Friendship Group: Qatar can bring an important contribution to the peace and stability in its region

The meeting has been honored by the presence of H.E. Sheikh Ali BIN JASSIM AL-THANI, Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the Kingdom of Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the European Union, together with H.E. Sheikh Mohammed BIN ABDULRAHMAN BIN JASSIM AL-THANI, Minister’s Assistant for International Cooperation Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Qatar and the members of his cabinet.

The discussions focused on the political situation in the region, how the EU can help make the region a safer place and reconstruct it.

We all agreed to bring education and culture as a priority tool into the Friendship group activity for a better knowledge and understanding among EU-Qatar.

Another topic of the discussions was Qatar’s contribution to the peace and stability in the region and how to create the mechanism and the premises to reconstruct the region.

We all agreed that the EU countries and the State of Qatar need to have a common understanding of the policy measures (not just from a military point of view, but also regarding human rights aid and reconstruction in the region.) We have to work together in order to create the premises for the reconstruction of the region, to build safe homes for those who have lost everything.

Qatar is supporting the United Nations in its efforts to reestablish stability in the region and is open to dialog.

From the business cooperation point of view, an interesting fact is that Qatar is open to increase its investments in Europe. Exchange of investment funds is one of Qatari priorities.
