to strengthen humanitarian ties

Ali bin Hassan Al Hammadi, secretary-general of the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), met with a high-profile delegation from the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Doha on Monday.
The delegation comprised Ambassador HE Giuseppe Angelo Yoffreda Yorio, Deputy Ambassador Fatima Majzoub and First Secretary Andres Eloy Marquez Picon.
The meeting was attended by Dr Fawzi Oussedik, head of International Relations and International Humanitarian Law, Adel Al Baker, director of the President’s Office, and Nagla Al Hajj, head of International Development.
Hammadi welcomed the guests and highlighted the strong political, economic, and humanitarian relations between Qatar and Venezuela. He also highlighted the close communication between the QRCS and the Venezuelan Red Cross at international conferences under the auspices of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
He revealed a plan to visit several South American countries, including Venezuela, where QRCS and the Venezuelan Red Cros would sign a Memorandum of Understanding ( MoU) to develop bilateral humanitarian cooperation, building on the excellent ties between the two
Dr Oussedik described the relationship between Qatar and Venezuela as “historical and not recent.”
QRCS advocated the appointment of the Vice President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in Venezuela.
Hajj presented the support of QRCS to the Venezuelan Red Cross, among the 22 National Societies that received humanitarian aid to fight COVID-19.
Yorio was delighted to be at QRCS to step up mutual collaboration to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. “Out of human solidarity Qatar’s government has given the world a lot,” he said.
“To be respected and appreciated is something”
He agreed to deliver all facilitations to Venezuela’s COVID-19 control project at QRCS. “Given the gap, the citizens of Venezuela and Qatar are close to their hearts,” Yorio concluded.
