Qatar: Emir Sheikh Tamim in Brussels and Bulgaria
Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani’s trip to Europe resulted in a number of potentially significant co-operation agreements being signed, bolstering Doha’s diplomatic and security position at a time when it feels vulnerable to regional antagonism.
