Qatar Emir Visits The Gulf Countries
Qatar’s Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani just concluded a three day visit to Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. A Qatari official told AFP, “This was basically a friendly tour, although it also carried a clear political message expressing the emir’s support to the Gulf union initiative presented by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.”
The official went on saying “The emir was keen to visit Gulf countries first, to emphasise the strong relations between the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council.” Sheikh Tamim visited Saudi Arabia in August, shortly after becoming Emir.
Here is a video of the Qatar Emir meeting with Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates:
