YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 6, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian Government has made a decision to establish an Embassy of Armenia to Qatar, stationed in Doha.
According to the government, the decision came taking into account “friendly relations of Armenia with Qatar, the high standard of living and investment opportunities of the country, growing tourism between Armenia and Qatar, as well as growing trade turnover”.
Qatar has also expressed readiness to open its own embassy in Yerevan in case Armenia makes the decision to open its representation in Doha.
In addition, Qatar is ready to provide nearly 110,000 dollars annually for three years, a territory for the embassy building, a residence for the ambassador and two vehicles.
The 110,000 dollars provided by Qatar will cover the maintenance expenses of the embassy, which is a total of 192,584 dollars annually.
Qatar is presently covered by Armenia’s Ambassador to the UAE, however after this decision a new and separate ambassador is expected to be named for Qatar.
