HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, chaired the regular meeting held yesterday by the Cabinet at its headquarters in the Amiri Diwan. 

At the outset of the meeting, the Cabinet hailed the results of the important and fruitful talks held by HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani - May God protect him - with HE President of the United States of America Joe Biden last Monday in Washington. These talks focused on developing and strengthening the well-established strategic cooperation relations between the two countries in various fields, as well as the most prominent regional and international developments and joint work to achieve peace in the region.

The Cabinet also expressed great satisfaction that the State of Qatar ranked first among Arab countries and 24th globally in the 2021 Global Food Security Index (GFSI), on a list that included 113 countries.

The Cabinet emphasized that this important achievement has been accomplished thanks to God, the Almighty, and then thanks to the directives of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani - may God protect him - and the special interest that HH the Amir attaches to food security projects. This is because it confirms the success of the State's plans in this vital field and its strategy to increase agricultural production to reach self-sufficiency in accordance with Qatar National Vision 2030.

Then, the Cabinet reviewed the following issues and took the appropriate decisions:

First - The Cabinet took the necessary measures to ratify a memorandum of understanding for co-operation in the field of education between Qatar and the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. 
Second - The Cabinet reviewed the following two issues and took the appropriate decisions:
