His Highness The Amir of State of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has received a message from United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, in which he expressed his deep appreciation for the support of Qatar to the United Nations during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), by organising an airlift from Doha to Kabul. The UN Chief also expressed his gratitude to HH the Amir for facilitating the redeployment of some United Nations staff in Yemen.
In his message, the UN chief stated that the United Nations humanitarian flights enabled the access and deployment of emergency humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, as well as the replacing of United Nations personnel.
In this regard, he said, “Qatar has provided basic and timely support for the transportation of the staff of the United Nations Mission in Support of the Hodeidah Agreement, as part of the interim procedure for our operations in Yemen.”
The UN Secretary-General praised the support provided by Qatar, saying that “the ideal support that Qatar has provided to the United Nations shows the responsibility and solidarity that are most needed to meet the challenges of COVID-19.”
Guterres expressed his support for the efforts of HH the Amir in combating the pandemic, and said he looked forward to working with His Highness to provide assistance to the countries that need them.
