The Ministry announced that Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, who also holds the position of foreign minister, arrived in Ukraine on Friday.
He will discuss “important issues” with Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, according to the foreign ministry’s statement posted on Twitter.
“During the meetings in Kyiv, the prime minister will reiterate Qatar’s stance that calls for respecting Ukraine’s sovereignty and the security of its lands within the internationally recognized borders, as well as abiding by the United Nations Charter and the established principles of international law,” said Majid bin Mohammed Al-Ansari, the foreign ministry’s spokesperson.
He added that the prime minister’s visit came as part of Qatar’s efforts to deescalate the war in Ukraine and address the resulting humanitarian needs.
Al-Thani will reiterate Qatar’s backing of international efforts aimed at extending the grain deal during his meetings with Ukraine’s prime minister and foreign minister, said Al-Ansari.
He will explore ways to strengthen cooperation across various fields and review Qatar’s “developmental efforts” in Ukraine.
