  • Qatar visit caps successful tour of Asia that brought the Saudi leader to Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand
RIYADH: Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in Qatar early Sunday to attend the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar, had earlier sent an invitation to the Saudi crown prince to attend the historic event, according to Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

Saudi Arabia is among the countries competing in the World Cup in Qatar.

It is lumped with Argentina, Mexico and Poland in Group C.

Qatar caps the Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman’s latest foreign tour, which began in Indonesia on Nov. 15 to attend the meeting of leaders of the world’s top 20 economies, known as G20.

The crown prince then flew to Seoul for a series of meetings with South Korean officials and business leaders, followed by an official visit to Thailand, where he also participated in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit and met with several Asian heads of state.

His delegation includes key Cabinet officials and a number of senior officials, SPA said.
