  • Description

    The Egyptian ambassador to Qatar, Mr Ahmad Fouad Helal, presented his credentials to the Emir of Qatar on Monday(April 10) in a ceremony that linked the tiny Arabian Gulf oil state more firmly to the Arab League nations.

    Qatar joined the Arab League in October last year -- almost immediately after declaring independence. In February this year, the new Emir, Sheikh Khalifa Bin Hamad Al-Thani, seized power in a bloodless coup which he said was designed to remove elements trying to hinder modernisation in the country.

    Qatar, which was a population of only 150,000, depends on oil for about 90 per cent of its income.

    Since joining the Arab League, Qatar has established diplomatic relation with Iraq and Egypt, and received a long series of Arab dignitaries on official visits.
