Qatar National Day


On behalf of the United States Government and the American people, I extend best wishes for a joyous National Day to His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani and the people of the State of Qatar.

The United States greatly values the deep ties our two nations share and remains committed to expanding our strong partnership.  We appreciate Qatar’s cooperation on a broad range of issues important to maintaining peace and stability in the region, as well as Qatar’s continued contributions to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS and our defense partnership.  We look forward to expanding bilateral education, scientific, and cultural initiatives and enhancing trade and investment between our countries.

I am proud of our unwavering partnership with Qatar and look forward to continued cooperation in the future.
