On January 2, 2019, the Speaker of the Shura Council in Qatar, Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Mahmoud, met with German Bundestag member and spokesperson of the Social Democratic Party of Germany’s parliamentary group, Nils Schmid.
The representatives discussed bilateral relations and the means to enhance them in the parliamentary field. Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Mahmoud expressed his deep satisfaction with the great development in Qatari-German ties, especially after the successful work visit of Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani to Germany in September of 2018 which brought a qualitative shift in the distinctive march of partnership between the two countries.
Schmid praised the progress of the State of Qatar in various fields, including Qatar’s distinguished regional and international role to establish peace and stability. He also expressed his pleasure at the fact that Qatar was chosen to host the upcoming assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), which will take place in Doha in April, and expressed his optimism in its success.
The meeting was attended by a number of officials in the Council and by H.E. Mr. Hans-Udo Muzel, the ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Qatar.
