Qatar appoints new ambassador to Morocco

Qatar’s ruler Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani appointed Monday Fahd Ibrahim Al-Mana as the new Qatari extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador to Morocco.

Fahd Ibrahim Al-Mana will replace Abdallah Bin Falah Bin Abdallah Al Doussari who has completed his mission in Rabat.

Prior to his nomination in Rabat, Al-Mana served as the Gulf country’s envoy to Argentina in 2013 and as Chargé d’affaires at Qatar’s diplomatic mission in Spain.

The Qatari ruler branded relations with Morocco as “extraordinary”.

The kingdom led by King Mohammed VI did not take side in the diplomatic feud opposing the tiny gas-rich country and its neighbors since June 2017. Morocco had then shipped foodstuffs to Doha as the blockade imposed on Qatar coincided with the fasting month of Ramadan.

Mana’s appointment comes few weeks after a visit by Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita Doha where he conveyed the Qatari ruler a message from King Mohammed VI.
