Doha, December 19 (QNA) - HE President of the Togolese Republic Faure Gnassingbe, praised the impressive organization of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
His Excellency expressed his admiration for the amazing stadiums that were built and the equipment available for the tournament, as well as the advanced infrastructure and the development process achieved by the State of Qatar.
His Excellency said in an interview with Qatar News Agency (QNA) that the State of Qatar should be proud of its history and development and what it has shown to the whole world, and the remarkable development it has achieved, as well as the distinguished organization of the World Cup that was not done by countries before, and therefore it is a country with a promising future.
His Excellency stressed that Qatar has thwarted all the malicious campaigns it has been subjected to since winning the bid to host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, as it has proven its ability to organize an exceptional World Cup and fulfilled all its promises by showing a lot of determination, seriousness and diligence.
In this context, His Excellency said, that in the beginning, there were those who questioned the ability of the State of Qatar to organize a sporting event of this size, and they used to say that there are no football traditions in Qatar, but these criticisms fell in the face of the wonderful organizational success, enthusiasm and large public attendance, because the love and passion for football brought them together.
His Excellency pointed out that these malicious campaigns, which aimed at questioning Qatar's ability to organize an exceptional World Cup, involve non-sports agendas, pointing out that some claim the right to give lessons to others and judge them according to their standards, and this is "unacceptable." His Excellency stressed that hosting the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 for the first time in the Arab world succeeded in changing the stereotype about the region and showed that Qatar and the Middle East have the same passion for football, enthusiasm and ambition, adding that this should entice and encourage FIFA to balance the representations within it, as well as alternate the distribution of the organization of the World Cup tournament.
His Excellency believed that the State of Qatar's organization of the World Cup achieved many gains, most notably that it provided an opportunity for the world to discover the splendor of Arab culture and its values, and to get acquainted with the Qatari society and the miraculous development witnessed by this country, calling for more mutual respect between societies through peaceful means.
With regard to bilateral relations between the two countries, His Excellency stressed that the two countries are keen to consolidate relations and cooperation in various fields, noting that his previous visit to Doha was within the framework of an economic forum.
His Excellency said that he had the honor of meeting HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, "and talks took place between both of us, and therefore we are on the way to enrich and consolidate relations between the two countries in the future".
HE the President of the Togolese Republic Faure Gnassingbe concluded his statement with (QNA) by congratulating HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, and the Qatari people on the occasion of the National Day, wishing Qatar further prosperity and development. (QNA)
