HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani stressed that Qatar and Poland have strong ties, as political relations began 28 years ago, and that there was strong co-ordination between both sides in all international events.
Addressing a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, the Emir said that Qatar was committed to providing Poland with natural gas, and the past few weeks have seen the signing of another agreement to provide Poland with natural gas.
He said that the two sides agreed to explore and encourage Qatari investments in Poland, particularly in the field of infrastructure as well as other fields such as tourism.
HH the Emir noted that co-operation talks focused on the health, education, and military fields as Poland has long experience in the field of military technology. He added that talks also focused on the central issue in the Middle East which is the Arab-Israeli conflict as well as the UN’s and the Security Council’s inability to resolve this issue.
The Emir expressed hope that there will be a fair solution to the issue as soon as possible, especially as it was a central one for Arabs and for the world.
He noted that the two sides discussed terrorism and how to counter it given that Arabs and Muslims are the most affected by this loathsome phenomenon.
HH the Emir said that the existence of terrorism was a result of the actions of governments against their people.
As a result, he added that countering terrorism militarily is important, but maintained that it would be a mistake to deal with one angle of terrorism and neglect the other, which is the main reason for its existence.
The Polish president described HH the Emir’s visit as historic and as a new starting point for ties that go back 28 years ago.
The president added that the visit will have tangible results, especially in the economic field. He also highlighted that Qatar was the biggest provider of natural gas to Poland, especially after the latest deal which will double the amount of natural gas provided to Poland.
The president also expressed his admiration for the progress the State of Qatar is experiencing.
He also praised its 2030 developmental plans and expressed his hope that Polish companies can play a part in Qatar’s preparations for hosting World Cup 2022.
He praised the prominent role Qatar plays in the international coalition for countering terrorism and expressed his hope that both sides can expand military co-operation.
