The main purpose of the President’s visit to Qatar was the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, which was severed by the former government.

During the trip, President Solih met the Amir of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, in which the President and the Amir discussed ways of strengthening the bilateral bond between the two countries.

After the trip to Qatar, President Solih proceeded to visit Bangladesh on a two-day trip, where he met with the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, followed by meetings with other senior officials of the Bangladeshi government. Discussions focused on ways of further strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries.

The President also visited the National Martyrs’ Memorial, locally identified as Jatiyo Smriti Soudho which is an important national monument situated in the district of Savar Upazila, within the capital of Bangladesh. President Solih attended a ceremony commemorating the 100th birthday of Centenary of Bangabandhu, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
