Qatar has provided a $100,000 grant to support sons and daughters of police officers who died during their duty in El Salvador.
In a speech during a ceremony held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of El Salvador, in co-ordination with the embassy of Qatar, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of El Salvador, Carlos Castaneda, extended thanks and gratitude to Qatar for its donation.
He said that the grant expresses Qatar's solidarity with El Salvador, especially with the police forces, by supporting a scholarship programme which aims to enable students to complete their university studies.
He noted that about 41 students have benefited from the programme in the fields of accounting, legal sciences, international relations, agricultural engineering, mechanics, media, and computer.
Meanwhile, Charge d'Affaires of the embassy of Qatar in El Salvador, Tariq Othman al-Othman, praised the relations between Qatar and El Salvador and stressed that this grant comes within the framework of Qatar's commitment to support friendly countries, and in recognition of the sacrifices made by the police officers who gave their lives in the course of their national duty in an attempt to ensure security and tranquility, protect the Salvadorans, prevent and suppress crime and control the climate of violence experienced by the country.
Al-Othman reiterated Qatar's commitment to supporting all humanitarian initiatives that will help achieve sustainable development in friendly countries and all countries of the world.
At the end of the ceremony, a memorandum of understanding on awarding a sum of $100,000 by Qatar to the sons and daughters of police officers who died during their national duty was signed.
