Wednesday, 9 December 2020, Prague, Czech Republic: The State of Qatar intends to open a diplomatic mission in Czechia. Albeit there is not yet a chancery, the mission is currently being headed by Shafi Newaimi Al Hajri in the capacity of Chargé d’affaires ad interim. The Embassy of Qatar in Germany, until now responsible for Czechia, has already set up a mechanism to allow the opening of a separate mission in Prague.
During a working visit to Prague, Chargé d’affaires Shafi Al Hajri was welcomed at Černín Palace, seat of the Czech Foreign Ministry, by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Michaela Marksová Tominová. The bilateral relations were discussed as well as other the upcoming general elections in Qatar scheduled for October 2021 at the initiative of the country’s Emir, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
