Putin meets Qatar’s emir, wishes him luck in hosting 2022 World Cup

Russian President Vladimir Putin wished Qatar luck in hosting the upcoming 2022 World Cup on Thursday, saying Russia was sharing its experience in holding the major sport event with the Qataris.

During the meeting with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Putin said that he had no doubt Qatar would host a successful tournament, while the emir thanked the Russian president for his continuing “assistance and co-operation.”

Russia hosted the 2018 World Cup, but its national team was barred by FIFA from participating in the 2022 edition of soccer’s biggest tournament shortly after Moscow launched its invasion of Ukraine.
