Speaking to a group of journalists at Qatar embassy office on Monday, the ambassador acknowledged that Nepal and Nepalis have contributed a lot for the world cup. “Qatar is thankful to Nepal and Nepalis for they were instrumental in building the stadiums,” he said. “Nepalis have helped in nation building in Qatar. People of Qatar have the highest level of respect for them.”

He also said that Qatar will do everything to ensure the happiness and well beings of Nepalis in Qatar.  

Qatar is also making an arrangement for exempting visa requirements for the people who want to visit Qatar to watch the World Cup. “They don’t need to get visas. They can travel once they buy the world cup tickets,” he said. According to him Qatar is waiting to welcome people from the world and to give them warm hospitality.
