BEIRUT: Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani said Monday his country was committed to helping Lebanon and supporting it in all circumstances, a statement by Prime Minister Najib Mikati’s press office said.

“Qatar has a moral commitment to help Lebanon both before and after the 2008 Doha agreement,” the Qatari Emir said following talks with Mikati at Doha’s Amiri Diwan.

The statement said that the two leaders signed six pending cooperation agreements and said that a joint meeting for the Lebanese-Qatari supreme committee would be held in Doha early next year.

“The Qatari emir showed his country’s readiness to cooperate with Lebanon in any proposal to resolve economic and political problems the country is facing,” said the statement.

Mikati arrived in Qatar Monday for a one-day official visit, accompanied by a Lebanese delegation including Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour, Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour, Environment Minister Nazem al-Khoury, Economy Minister Nicolas Nahhas, and State Minister Ahmad Karami.

According to the statement, the delegation is also expected to meet senior Qatari officials.
