Qatar Inaugurates United Nations House in Lusail

Qatar inaugurated the United Nations House in Lusail on Saturday, March 4th, bringing together various UN agencies in one building and working as a high-level UN diplomatic center in the region. 

The newly inaugurated UN House includes 12 UN offices operating in various fields and contributing to empowering, developing, and enhancing the capabilities of individuals in the region.

This move came on the eve of the Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5), which is taking place from March 5th to 9th in Doha.

The event was attended by Qatar's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani and UN Secretary-General António Guterres. 

The foreign minister said that this step signifies the long history of ties between them, and signals a momentous occasion for both the country and the agency as they move towards more cooperation.

"Today is a memorable day, it's the day where we establish the UN House in the State of Qatar," Qatar’s envoy to the UN, Sheikha Alya Al-Thani, told Doha News at the inauguration.
