hamadWord from the Ambassador

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all on the website of the Embassy of the State of Qatar to Turkmenistan.

This website covers a wealth of information about the State of Qatar, in addition to the services provided by the Embassy for all citizens, residents, and visitors to the State of Qatar, as well as the bilateral relations between our two friendly countries.

I would like to express my felicity and pride as an Ambassador for my country to Turkmenistan, which has a longstanding and profound brotherly relationship with the State of Qatar. With the help and will of God; I will tirelessly endeavour to deepen the friendship and mutual cooperation between the two States, and to realize the basis of shared objectives towards meeting the aspirations of the people and states of the two friendly countries.

Eventually, and in behalf of the members of the mission colleagues, I would like to reflect my thanks and appreciation to the visitors of the Embassy of the State of Qatar to Turkmenistan website, in the hope that it serves as a resource of learning about the role and activities of the Embassy, as well as further enhancing the services provided to the nationals of the State, imploring God’s Almighty to the well-being and interest of our beloved country.
