The meeting was held with an aim to enhance cultural ties between Qatar and Cuba through cooperation between the two countries' cultural entities.
During the visit, the Cuban ambassador also presented a proposal to the Katara GM to host a fine-art exhibition by one of the most prominent Cuban artists in October, 2017, coinciding with the Cuban national day.
For his part, Sulaiti, enthusiastically welcomed the proposal, saying,"At Katara we seek to provide a platform for showcasing artworks from different parts of the world. It stems from Katara's keenness to build communication bridges between people belonging to different cultures and shed light on various civilisations."
