The Egyptian President and the Emir of Qatar meet on the sidelines of the Baghdad Summit

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani arrived in the Iraqi capital to participate in the Baghdad Summit of leaders of neighboring countries.
With their participation in this summit, expectations indicate the possibility that they will meet on the sidelines of the conference, which is what Baghdad seeks at this summit to “gather the parties.”
“Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi seeks to bring together the Egyptian president and the Emir of Qatar in a marginal meeting to bring them closer together.”
He also added, “It is very much expected that a small meeting between Sisi and Al Thani will take place in Baghdad.”
On the twelfth of last April, the Egyptian presidency said, “Al-Sisi received a phone call from Al-Thani to congratulate him on the advent of the month of Ramadan.”
Relations between the two countries were strained in 2017, when Egypt joined the countries that boycotted Qatar against the backdrop of the Gulf crisis with Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Earlier, the head of the Academy of Political Development and Good Governance in Iraq, Rahman al-Jubouri, said that “this summit will be a draft for a new map and understandings between the countries of the region, related to security and the economy.”
