Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

The Emir, His High­ness Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad Al Thani, has reaf­firmed Qatar's neu­tral stance on de­vel­op­ments in the re­gion and said the coun­try al­ways stood for jus­tice, equal­ity, broth­erly re­la­tions with other coun­tries and peace. “We have al­ways been play­ing the role of a me­di­a­tor be­tween coun­tries with dif­fer­ences, pro­vided they have sought our me­di­a­tion. We are all for peace,” the Emir said while speak­ing at a din­ner ban­quet hosted by French Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande dur­ing his visit France to last month.
