Doha: Ambassador of Georgia to the State of Qatar H E Nikoloz Revazishvili has said that throughout its history and especially during the last decades, the State of Qatar has achieved astonishing results in terms of its overall economic, political and societal development.
The Ambassador affirmed that these achievements are attributed to the wise leadership of Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, whose support towards progress and development remains robust and unwavering, as well as to the Qatari government and people.
Thanks to those efforts and achievements, Qatar today plays an important role not only in the Gulf, but also in the wider region and internationally, he said.
In a statement to Qatar News Agency on the occasion of the National Day, the Ambassador said that since the establishment of diplomatic relations, Georgia and Qatar maintain very positive dynamics of bilateral ties, as bilateral relations and cooperation has been steadily developed in the fields of economy, culture, trade, security cooperation, education, tourism etc.
The geographical proximity of the two countries naturally contributes to the development and deepening of many aspects of their relationship, he added.
Historically close ties between Georgia and the Arab world, cultural kinship and friendship between peoples – are favourable preconditions for further deepening of mutually beneficial relations, he said, pointing out that during the last years, several high level visits took place from both sides, and that more than ten Agreements and MoUs were signed in different areas and more are under consideration or ready to be signed in the nearest future.
He noted that Georgia has become one of the favourite tourist destinations for Qataris, and after the COVID-19 pandemic, it will maintain this status, adding that the pandemic and the current restrictions forced the two countries to re-schedule many events, visits on highest levels and different bilateral projects, but as soon as conditions allow, dynamic interactions between Georgia and the State of Qatar will continue with even more intensity.
The Ambassador expressed confidence that with the determination and efforts of the governments of both states mutually beneficial cooperation will further enhance and develop. Ambassador of Georgia congratulated, on behalf of the Georgian Government and Georgian people, H H the Amir and the Government and people of Qatar on the occasion of the National Day, wishing Qatar lasting peace and prosperity.
