A hand­out pic­ture re­leased by Qatar Univer­sity shows Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan ad­dress­ing an au­di­ence at the univer­sity dur­ing a cer­e­mony where he was awarded an hon­orary doc­tor­ate.

Tur­key's Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan's state visit to Qatar co­in­cided with the con­clu­sion of the Qatar-Tur­key Year of Cul­ture. A num­ber of im­por­tant re­la­tion­ships were es­tab­lished such as the first ever Supreme Strate­gic Com­mit­tee set up by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from both the coun­tries. Pres­i­dent Er­do­gan ex­pressed sat­is­fac­tion at the out­stand­ing level reached by the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions in all fields and the con­tin­u­ous con­sul­ta­tion and co­or­di­na­tion be­tween the two broth­erly coun­tries. On the side­lines, sev­eral Me­moranda of Un­der­stand­ing were signed, no­tably be­tween the two mil­i­taries, Qatar Petroleum and Turk­ish Potash for co­op­er­a­tion on nat­u­ral gas­re­lated mat­ters, in the fields of press and in­for­ma­tion, and be­tween Qatar Foun­da­tion and the Sci­en­tific and Tech­no­log­i­cal Re­search Coun­cil of Tur­key to consolidate their ef­forts on mat­ters of science and tech­nol­ogy.
