Doha-Qatar’s capital witnessed on Thursday a Qatari-South African summit that discussed ways to improve ties in all fields mainly in business, economy and investment.

Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and President of South Africa Jacob Zuma held official talks at the Emiri Diwan.

The two sides exchanged views on regional and international issues of common concern, particularly the latest developments in the Palestinian issue, where the two sides affirmed their position in support of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate national rights.

They also stressed the need to intensify international efforts in order to achieve lasting and comprehensive peace in the Middle East, which can only be achieved through the end of the Israeli occupation of Arab territories and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with relevant international resolutions and the Arab peace initiative.

Following the meeting, the Emir and Zuma witnessed the signing of a defense cooperation agreement, a police cooperation agreement and an agreement on cooperation in the fields of arts, culture and heritage between the Government of the State of Qatar and the Government of South Africa.
