Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud, who is on a visit to Qatar met the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, on Monday (March 4th) for talks on strengthening Somali-Qatar bilateral relations as well as discussing regional and international affairs.

The Emir later hosted a lunch for President Mahmoud who described relations between the two countries as strong. Talking to the Qatar News Agency later, the Somali President praised the role Qatar is playing in regional and international politics. He said Somalia wanted to make use of Qatar's expertise in reaching national reconciliation, adding that the people and government of Somalia have complete faith in Qatar's ability to help them in this aim.

A joint Qatar-Somalia committee convened several weeks ago in Doha at the invitation of the Qatari Foreign Ministry. The committee is to provide recommendations on ways to support the education and health sectors in Somalia. The Somali President noted that finding ways to encourage the rebuilding Somalia was one of the priorities of his visit to Qatar.
