DOHA: HH the Amir Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, accompanied by senior officials, arrived in the Qatari capital on Tuesday on a state visit to the Gulf country. Upon entering Qatari territorial airspace, a squadron of Qatari warplanes accompanied HH the Amir’s plane until its landing at the airport, where he was welcomed by the Qatari Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and senior officials.

An official reception was held for HH the Amir Sheikh Mishal at the Qatari Amiri Diwan on the occasion of his state visit to Qatar. Upon arrival at the Amiri Diwan, a group of cavalrymen and cameleers formed a line, popular troupes performed the Qatari ardha dance and an 18-gun salute was given to HH the Amir. The national anthems of Kuwait and Qatar were then played. HH the Amir then shook hands with Qatari sheiks and senior officials, while Qatari Amir Sheikh Tamim shook hands with HH the Amir’s accompanying delegation.
