"I would like to join the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luigi Di Maio, in his expression of gratitude to the State of Qatar for its timely and generous donation of two field hospitals with a capacity of 500 beds each," the envoy said in a statement Tuesday. "It is a tangible gesture of friendship between the Italian and Qatari people and a strong support for Italy’s efforts to fight the pandemic."
He continued, "Moreover, this donation embodies the close bonds of co-operation between our armed forces. At a time when Italy and Qatar are co-operating in the context of so many joint training programmes ,we are moved to see that the Qatari Amiri Air Force will transport this donation to Italy and that our women and men of the armed forces will work together once again for the installation of the two field hospitals."
