The Atlantic Council is hosting a virtual #ACFrontPage conversation featuring Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani, prime minister and minister of foreign affairs of Qatar, on Monday, January 29, 2024 at 12:00 pm ET.

With the continuing conflict between Israel and Hamas and the looming threat of a broader regional war, Al-Thani will outline Doha’s role in current negotiations over the war in Gaza and Qatar’s strategic vision for de-escalating tensions and promoting regional security and prosperity in the Middle East. As a major non-NATO ally of the United States, Qatar plays a pivotal role in seeking and proposing solutions to the current conflict and other regional and global issues of crucial importance to the United States. Al-Thani will also discuss US-Qatar relations, Doha’s role in ensuring regional security, and Qatar’s foreign-policy vision.

The event will be livestreamed on Atlantic Council TV, YouTube, Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter). To register, please click the link above or below.
