A number of issues, including migration, trade and investment, human rights, education and culture, were discussed at the third meeting of the Qatar-UK Sharaka bilateral dialogue in Doha yesterday. 
The meeting was co-chaired by the UK’s Minister for the Middle East, Tobias Ellwood, and Qatar’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, HE Sultan bin Saad al-Muraikhi.
The two sides emphasised the importance of reinforcing the bilateral relationship across all sectors to support Qatar in its 2030 National Vision, the British embassy said in a press statement.
Ellwood and HE al-Muraikhi also discussed political and security developments in the Middle East, especially Syria and Libya. Both countries agreed to continue close co-operation to resolve ongoing conflicts in the region and work for the security of both countries.
“The UK and Qatar have a long-standing and close partnership rooted in our history and shared interests. The meeting further demonstrates our excellent relationship across the board, including prosperity, trade and investment, and security. Our close relationship also means we can discuss issues such as human rights. The Sharaka meetings continue to be significant in maintaining an open and sustained dialogue between our countries and I look forward to hosting the next one in 2017,” Ellwood said.
