BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – Emir of the State of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and French President Emmanuel Macron met in Paris on Friday as part of an official visit to the Republic.

The conference was held right before the quarter-final match between France and Uruguay and both heads of state were keen to mark the occasion.

“We spoke about a number of issues, but we have a problem about time, because we have only 30 minutes before the match and you have questions, but I only wanted to say that the relationship [between Qatar and France] is very very strong between the two countries and we are very proud of this relationship,” said Al Thani.

Al Thani is also the owner of PSG football and handball club and through his Qatar Investment Authority has invested heavily in sports at home and in France.

Qatar already hosted the handball World Cup and the cycling World Championship, and will host the 2019 World Championships in Athletics, the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2023 World Aquatics Championships.

Macron was grateful of the investments made in France and said: “your commitment to French sport is a chance for France.”

PSG : Paris-St.Germain : one of the two main football clubs with “Olympic de Marseille”.
Let’s hope a very very strong relationship will be given back to Tamim, just like to Qaddafi…
Macron shall always remember our national anthem verse : “Against us, tyranny”… Slime like Tamim shall end with a bayonet in his a$$ too…

Ziobag is proud of the aggression against Libya and support for Al-CIAida / Daesh terrorists. Nothing surprising.
