Doha: Minister of Transport and Communications H E Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti was yesterday honoured by French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian with the ‘Commander of the National Order of the Legion of Honor’ at an event attended by Prime Minister and Interior Minister H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani.
Al Sulaiti expressed pleasure for the appreciation, attributing it to massive and unlimited support he has been receiving from Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and directives from the Premier.
The Minister 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 views on several issues of common interest.
Eventually, that had made our bilateral relations a good role model and pushed both countries to explore new horizons for cooperation to further enhance ties, he said.
Al Sulaiti 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.
He said it is a new addition to the history of unique relations between both countries and a true translation of our clear vision for sustainable cooperation in all domains.The Peninsula
