ISLAMABAD, Oct 21 (APP): President Mamnoon Hussain is visiting the State of Qatar on October 22-25.

The President will hold bilateral meetings with the Emir of
Qatar and other dignitaries. The two sides will review important aspects of bilateral relations, according to a Foreign Office statement issued here.

Regional issues and international developments will also be
discussed.

Pakistan and Qatar enjoy excellent bilateral relations in all
fields. The two countries share similar views on regional and global issues and also closely cooperate and support each other at the international fora like the UN and OIC.

People-to-People contacts have remained an important feature of bilateral relations between the two countries. Qatar hosts more than 125,000 Pakistanis, who have been contributing towards the development and prosperity of Qatar as well as Pakistan.

The high-level exchanges between the two countries, that
started with the visit of His Highness the Emir of Qatar to Pakistan in March 2015 and return visit by the Prime Minister of Pakistan to Qatar in February 2016, area testimony of growing relations between the two brotherly countries.

The main focus of the President’s official talks and
interaction with the Qatari leadership will be on further
enhancement of bilateral relations in various fields, including
energy cooperation, trade investment, defence and increase in employment opportunities for the Pakistani workforce in the Qatari market.

The President’s visit would further consolidate the already
existing brotherly relations.
