Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt met Qatari Deputy Foreign Minister His Excellency Soltan Al Muraikhi to discuss bilateral and regional issues.

Mr Burt said:

Almost exactly a year since Theresa May signed an agreement with the Prime Minister of Qatar to increase cooperation between our two countries, I was delighted to attend the fourth Sharaka dialogue with Qatar, with whom the UK has enjoyed a close partnership for many years.

The UK reaffirmed its commitment to supporting Qatar’s 2030 National Vision, and the 2022 World Cup. We agreed to strengthen our relationship and broaden our cooperation in a number of areas. These include working together on humanitarian and security issues to build a safer and more prosperous future for Qatar, the UK and the wider Middle East region.
