QATAR'S NEWLY APPOINTED PM HOLDS FIRST MEETING WITH SZIJJÁRTÓ IN DOHA

 

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Qatar’s newly appointed prime minister, held his first meeting after taking his oath of office with Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó in Doha on Tuesday. Szijjártó said on Facebook that he had set out from the conference centre in Doha “to meet my good friend Foreign Minister Mohammed Al Thani, but by the time I arrived, I was met by Prime Minister Mohammed Al Thani, as his first guest, around five minutes after he took his oath.” From now on, Qatari-Hungarian cooperation will have a supporter at the highest level, Szijjártó said. “We now have even better prospects for obtaining LNG gas from Qatar,” he said, adding that this would contribute to Hungary’s energy security in the foreseeable future. The minister also congratulated Qatar on its success in hosting the 2022 World Cup.
