KATHMANDU: During a meeting at the Office of the President in Shital Niwas, President Ramchandra Paudel emphasized the need for Nepal and Qatar to deepen cooperation on shared concerns such as mitigating the impacts of climate change, protecting the Himalayas, preserving water sources, and maintaining environmental equilibrium.

President Paudel made these remarks during discussions with the Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who is currently on a two-day state visit to Nepal at President Paudel’s invitation.

“The global challenge we face today is safeguarding our planet from the effects of climate change, protecting our Himalayan region, preserving our water sources, and ensuring environmental stability.

Collaboration among all nations is essential in addressing these issues, which are crucial for human survival. I believe that developing countries, in particular, should take these matters more seriously,” quoted President Paudel’s press advisor, Kiran Pokharel.

President Paudel also expressed concern about the ongoing conflict in the Middle East, as shared by Pokharel.

Furthermore, President Paudel commended Qatar’s efforts in peacebuilding and expressed hopes for an end to the conflict and the restoration of peace in the region.

In response, Emir Al Thani acknowledged the global impact of climate change and stressed the importance of adhering to international agreements to achieve positive outcomes and create a healthier environment.

He expressed confidence that his visit would lead to fruitful discussions and further strengthen Nepal-Qatar relations.

Emir Al Thani also praised the significant contributions of Nepali migrant workers to Qatar’s development and expressed interest in exploring new investment opportunities in water resources, agriculture, tourism, and other sectors in Nepal.

President Paudel expressed optimism about the agreements and memoranda of understanding expected to be reached during the visit, which he believes will unlock new investment potentials in water resources, agriculture, and tourism.

Highlighting the longstanding friendly relations between Nepal and Qatar, President Paudel emphasized the importance of mutual respect, trust, and goodwill in bilateral ties.

He noted the tradition of regular high-level visits between the two countries, which have played a crucial role in expanding bilateral relations.

President Paudel expressed confidence in Qatar’s continuous support for Nepal’s development and prosperity, especially as Nepal transitions towards economic growth and political stability.

He also anticipated further deepening of bilateral cooperation in trade, tourism, and investment.

Finally, President Paudel commended Qatar’s sustainable development under the visionary leadership of the Emir, praising his dedication to making Qatar a highly developed nation.
