QRCS Secretary-General discusses humanitarian issues with Tunisia’s Ambassador
Ali bin Hassan Al-Hammadi, Secretary-General of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), has received Sami Saïdi, Ambassador of the Republic of Tunisia in Doha, to discuss stronger relations and humanitarian issues of common interest. The meeting was attended by Muhsen Abdullah Al-Maliki, Director of Communication, and Dr. Fawzi Oussedik, Head of International Relations. Mr. Al-Hammadi welcomed the guest and wished him a successful mission and the best of luck for the Tunisian people. He commended the close relations between the two countries, as well as the economic improvement of Tunisia, particularly in tourism and agriculture. The Secretary-General of QRCS said Mr. Ambassador did a lot to strengthen understanding between the Qatari and Tunisian organizations. “QRCS and its Tunisian counterpart has always got on well, since the days of Dr. Taher Cheniti, the late president of the Tunisian Red Crescent,” he added. The meeting discussed the latest humanitarian situation in Libya and explored potential cooperation to help the victims. “QRCS,” Mr. Al-Hammadi explained, “rehabilitated the facilities of the Higher Institute of Islamic Civilization in Tunis. We also support the Tunisian community in Qatar, particularly the Tunisian School Doha, which receives in-kind donations and hosts training events like QRCS School Program and first aid courses”. Dr. Oussedik said a QRCS delegation would visit Tunisia late this month, to attend the meetings of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Islamic Committee of the International Crescent (ICIC). During the visit, QRCS plans to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Tunisian Red Crescent. Mr. Saïdi promised to facilitate the MoU, which would serve as a framework of humanitarian cooperation under the common bilateral strategy.
