International News: United States and Qatar celebrate 50 years of bilateral relations

Posted: Monday, November 21, 2022. 1:25 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United States and Qatar are celebrating 50 years of bilateral relations.

The U.S. State Department says that the U.S. and Qatar have enjoyed a close partnership.

“This partnership was further deepened in January when the White House hosted the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the first Gulf leader to visit Washington since President Biden took office, and the President designated Qatar as a major non-NATO ally,” a statement from the U.S. State Department said.

As Qatar prepared to host the FIFA Men’s World Cup in 2022, the United States and Qatar committed to expanding close interagency cooperation to ensure a safe and successful tournament.

U.S. Secretary of State, Antony J. Blinken will travel to Doha, Qatar where he will advance this cooperation and show his support for the U.S. Men’s Team as they face off against Wales. 

During his visit, Blinken is scheduled to meet with senior Qatari officials, including Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, to open the fifth session of the U.S.-Qatar Strategic Dialogue.

“We congratulate Qatar on the historic step of opening direct flights between Tel Aviv and Doha for the duration of the World Cup and commend the efforts that went into this arrangement.  The recent announcement is a historic development and an important step that holds great promise to bolster people-to-people ties and economic relations,” the U.S. State Department added.
