I expect a very busy agenda for both leaders and delegations, as there are many issues to be addressed,” said Carlos Velasco Mendiola, ambassador of Peru.
“The agenda of discussions will include issues of bilateral and multilateral interest, as well as regional and global matters.The mutual dialogue among the two leaders will centre around the ways of strengthening the cooperation in different fields, such as political, economic and commercial (improving bilateral trade), investment opportunities, air connectivity between both countries, cultural, youth and sports, as well as cooperation in multilateral forums,” explained Mendiola.

According to the envoy, there are positive expectations in the economic and entrepreneurial circles of Peru about the official visit of HH the Amir of Qatar. Cabinet ministers will also meet with the delegation to deal issues of their respective sectors.
The Peruvian ambassador also highlighted that diplomatic relations between both the counties are entering into the 25th anniversary. “Diplomatic relations between Peru and Qatar were established on November 7th, 1989, which means that next year we will commemorate the 25th anniversary. Since that date, the bilateral relations between the two countries have been developing positively and gradually. Today, we have a solid legal framework of the relations, created during the successful official visit of His Highness the Father Amir, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani in February 2013, reciprocated by the president of Peru in 2014,” noted the official.
The envoy maintained that the government of Peru is committed to continue and enhance the relations with Qatar. “We have great expectations in the future development of the bilateral relations. We are both modern societies and developing countries with abound natural resources in our own regions. Therefore, I believe that the cooperation in economic, trade, financial, educational and scientific and technological fields will secure this purpose. Particularly, the cultural domain can bring both countries closer together and allow to know each other better,” he hoped.
The ambassador also pointed out that Peru observes the leadership of the government of Qatar with great attention in the field of international diplomacy and conflict resolution, as well as mediation in different parts of the world and at the regional level. “There is ample coincidence between foreign policies of Peru and Qatar on issues of the global agenda under the framework of the United Nations Charter, the respect of international law and the peaceful solution of conflicts, as well as in the fight against international terrorism, promotion and defence of human rights and protection of environment,” he added.
