This is Not the Qatari Foreign Minister

Published On: May 22, 2024Categories: Fact Check

Amu TV broadcast an image of Thomas West, the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan, meeting with the Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar, mistakenly calling him the Qatari Foreign Minister.

The image actually shows Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulaziz Al-Khulaifi, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar. This media outlet broadcast the image and news incorrectly, despite Thomas West mentioning Khulaifi’s X (formerly Twitter) account, indicating that he met him in Doha.

The Qatari Foreign Minister is Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, who is also the Prime Minister of Qatar.
