Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) secretary-general Ali bin Hassan al-Hammadi has received Tunisia's ambassador to Qatar Sami Saidi to discuss stronger relations and humanitarian issues of common interest.

The meeting was attended by QRCS officials Muhsen Abdullah al-Maliki, director of Communication, and Dr Fawzi Oussedik, head of International Relations.

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 QRCS secretary-general said Saidi did a lot to strengthen understanding between Qatari and Tunisian organisations. “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 co-operation to help the victims. “QRCS,” al-Hammadi explained, “rehabilitated the facilities of the Higher Institute of Islamic Civilisation in Tunis. We also support the Tunisian community in Qatar, particularly Tunisian School Doha, which receives in-kind donations and hosts training events such as the QRCS School Programme and first-aid courses."

Dr Oussedik said a QRCS delegation would visit Tunisia later this month to attend the meetings of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation’s Islamic Committee of the International Crescent.

During the visit, QRCS plans to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Tunisian Red Crescent. Saidi promised to facilitate the MoU, which would serve as a framework of humanitarian co-operation under the common bilateral strategy, QRCS said in a statement.
