Germany’s contribution to international peace and security and multilateralism, as echoed its call for a diplomatic solution to the Gulf crisis, is underlined in Doha, the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Mall.
HE attended the event, also known as the Day of German Unity, were Minister of Development for Labor, Social Affairs and Administrative Development Yousef bin Mohamed al-Othman Fakhro, HE State Foreign Minister Sultan bin Saad al-Muraikhi, President of the Alfardan Group of Hussain Ibrahim Alfardan, member of the Board of the Qatar Business Management Association and the Joint Task Force for Business a CBQ for Qatar and German, Honorary President of the German Business Council of Qatar Sheikha Hanadi bint Nasser al-Thani, the de-service Diplomatic Corps, and Ambassador Ali Ibrahim Ahmad of Eritrean states, Ibrahim Yousef Fahkroo, the Director of Protocols to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and diplomats from different Doha missions.
Muzel stressed in his speech that the people of the vibrant, large area have the power to meet the difficulties and tensions that exist.
As the process of German reunification clearly shows: no matter where you are from, you have more things in common than you have. And all together will do what they are trying to achieve.
According to him, people have seen the incredible strength of competition during competitions such as the IAAF World Championships and recent ANOC World Beach Games.
Muzel was hopeful that this success story would culminate in the country’s World Cup 2022.
In the historic and eventual reunification of Germany on 3 October 1990, he also emphasized the assistance of Germany’s friends and partners around the world, including Qatar.
The German Embassy at Doha noted, however, in a statement, that the ground was laid for German unity in former Czechoslovakia and Hungary, where politicians took courageous choices by allowing citizens from the former eastern part of Germany to visit what was then known as West Germany, thereby causing the first cracks within the wall which divided Europe over a period of 40 years.
Qatar has the same vision of a multilateral and rules-based global order as the world’s major partner, says Muzel.
