UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has thanked Qatar’s Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani for supporting the UN humanitarian airlift operations from Doha to Kabul during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The UN humanitarian flights enable the access and deployment of emergency aid to Afghanistan. Qatar Airways has signed a two-year partnership with the UN to deliver humanitarian relief and assistance to at-risk populations.

Guterres praised Qatar’s efforts, calling it “the ideal support” that showed the “responsibility and solidarity” that is needed to meet the challenges presented by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The UN Chief also expressed his gratitude to Qatar for facilitating the redeployment of some UN staff in Yemen.
