Charge d’Affaires of the embassy of Sudan, Ghazi Babeker Humaidah, described the relations between Qatar and Sudan as historic, stressing that they are getting stronger as time passes. Hemmeida noted, in a statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA) on the occasion of Qatar’s National Day, that the bonds between the Sudanese and Qatari people are inseparable, adding that he expected the bilateral relations between the two countries to witness steady growth and development in the near future under the leadership of the glorious December revolution and the Sudanese government of Prime Minister Dr Abdalla Hamdok.
He pointed out that the features of that development have been clarified through meetings, visits and contacts that have taken place so far, adding “on the behalf of the Government of the Republic of Sudan, we must thank His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani for his call, in the speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly in September and at the opening of the 48th session of the Shura Council, to remove the name of Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism and his support for Sudan through his meeting in New York with Dr Abdalla Hamdok on the sidelines of the current session of the United Nations General Assembly.
He said that within the framework of the distinguished relations between the two countries, Qatar has significant investments in Sudan, especially in the agricultural and real estate fields, in addition to its role in the restoration of Sudanese antiquities through the Sudanese-Qatari project. Furthermore, there is distinguished relationship between the two countries in the cultural fields and reconstruction projects in Darfur and the peace villages built by Qatar.
Hemmeida expressed his appreciation to the contributions of Qatar Red Crescent and Qatar Charitable Society for Sudan, especially during the floods that have recently swept a number of Sudanese states.
The acting charge d’Affaires at the Sudanese embassy in Doha congratulated the State of Qatar, which celebrates its National Day on the 18th of December every year.
He added, “I would like to congratulate the State of Qatar on the great national and historical occasion,” stressing that Qatar’s celebration of its National Day is a celebration of the ancestor’s past, which represents the base for Qatar’s present and a platform for a bright future.
He continued by saying, “We tell Qatar and its people, as they celebrate the National Day, that history will record for you that the clarity of vision and unity of goal between the leadership and the people is what will achieve the noble goals and lofty aspirations of the ancestors.”
He also praised the remarkable achievements of Qatar during the past period, both domestically and internationally, noting that Qatar has paid great attention to the infrastructure. He revealed that he was observing what is happening in Qatar during the past two years and saw that a great effort has been made. He stressed that the most important thing accomplished by Qatar is the investment in Qatari people through education and the opening of branches of the most prominent international universities in Doha, as well as the interest in healthcare and the development in the communication and technological sector.
He pointed out that Qatar has established, through soft diplomacy, a network of strong external relations with most countries of the world. It also has common interests, economic and investment ties that made it a country of great importance in the regional environment and at the international level. Its investments have expanded across continents, while Qatar also hosted a large range of seminars and meeting of importance in the parliamentary, human rights and security fields, which prepares it to play an influential role regionally and internationally. 
Hemmeida expressed his sincere thanks to Qatar for hosting the Sudanese community residing in the country, which is estimated to be more than 60,000 in medical, legal, engineering, educational, sports and other sectors. He stressed that they all enjoy a distinguished relationship with their Qatari brothers and contribute with them in the renaissance of the country.
