Qatar's Emir, PM welcome Jordan Senate President
2012-05-20

The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifah Al Thani on Sunday welcomed Senate President Taher Masri who is attending the 12th Doha Forum and Enriching the Middle East's Economic Future conference that opened Sunday in Doha.

They discussed various areas of the forum in addition to Jordanian-Qatari ties.

Masri told Petra's reporter in Doha that Jordan and Qatar had "constantly developing" ties due to the interest of the two countries' leaderships in advancing bilateral cooperation.

He noted the Qatari emir's opening remarks at the forum in which he referred to Arab Spring uprisings calling for freedom and emphasising that "it is time for Palestine to gain its freedom." The Qatari emir told the gathering: It is wrong to leave the Palestinian issue unresolved on the global political agenda because Arab peoples will never allow that from now, urging Israel to take positive and bold steps for peace and "a spring of just Middle East peace." Masri also met Qatar's Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassem Bin Jabr Al Thani and discussed ways and means of cementing bilateral relations.

Taking part in the Doha gathering are delegates from over 80 countries and organisations from the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the Americas to work out solutions to pressing regional issues.

The Forum will tackle a host of topics, including democracy and development and free trade in addition to political, economic and social issues.
