Qatar’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, Yousef bin Ali al-Khater, hailed the strong relations between Qatar and the United Kingdom in various fields.
“A few days ago, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani paid an official visit to the United Kingdom”, ambassador al-Khater said at the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
“The visit was very fruitful and during which the depth of the ties between the two countries were stressed and a number of agreements signed for the interests of the two countries.”
He added: “Qatar Goodwood Festival has become a hallmark in the United Kingdom. I consider it the second event in horse racing here after Royal Ascot. Qatar’s sponsorship of the Festival started four years ago and has added more momentum to the event on all levels. Therefore, significant benefits are gained from the Festival every year, especially as it enhances the presence of Qatar’s equestrian sport in such world-class gatherings.
“It also reflects the attention and support received from the senior officials in Qatar as demonstrated by the presence of His Excellency Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad al-Thani, President of Qatar Olympic Committee, during the first two days of the Festival,” added ambassador al-Khater.
Speaking about the strong partnership between Qatar and the UK, the ambassador said: “No doubt there are strong relations and strategic cooperation, contributing to enhancing the collaboration between the two countries in several areas.”
