THE EMIR ON AIR

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

In his first tele­vi­sion in­ter­view as the Emir of Qatar, HH Sheikh Tamim spoke to CNN's Chris­tiane Aman­pour about Qatar's for­eign pol­icy, laws en­acted to pro­tect mi­grant work­ers, and Qatar's readi­ness to host a great world cup in 2022.

Alarge part of the in­ter­view fo­cused on for­eign pol­icy and about Qatar's support for cer­tain Is­lamic groups. “I know that in Amer­ica and some coun­tries they look at some move­ments as ter­ror­ist move­ments... But there are dif­fer­ences. There are some coun­tries and some peo­ple who think that any group which comes from Is­lamic back­ground are ter­ror­ists. And we don't ac­cept that,” he said. He re­it­er­ated Qatar's staunch op­po­si­tion to the Bashar Al As­sad's regime in Syria, Qatar's de­sire to go back to its role as a ne­go­tia­tor, and about Qatar lend­ing it's support to the Egyp­tian gov­ern­ment, not the Mus­lim Brother­hood in par­tic­u­lar.
