France Honors HE the Minister with Commander of the Legion of Honor

Doha – Qatar

HE Minister of Transport and Communications Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti was honored today by French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian with the “Commander of the National Order of the Legion of Honor” in an event that was witnessed by HE Qatar's Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani.

HE Minister Al Sulaiti expressed pleasure for the appreciation, attributing that to the massive and unlimited support he said has been receiving from HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and directives from HE Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani.

HE Minister Al Sulaiti said Qatari-French relations are strong and historic, have been reinforced in multiple fields over the past few years, and saw a remarkable advancement that moved them from conventional to strategic level thanks to convergence of points of views on several issues of common interest.

Eventually, that had made our bilateral relations a good role model, said the Minister, and pushed the two countries to explore new horizons for cooperation to further enhance their bilateral ties.

HE Minister Al Sulaiti also said he has been working to boost cooperation between the two friendly nations since he started his professional career and that cooperation resulted in launching joint projects in the field of transport and information technology.

That is a new addition to the history of unique relations between Qatar and France, the Minister added, and a true translation of our clear vision for sustainable cooperation in all domains.​
