The Times’ allegations are baseless

The Government Communications Office has said the article published by the times on June the 4th which makes serious and baseless claims about Qatar is predicated on misleading assertions, factual inaccuracies, and bias. “Despite Qatar engaging with The Times on these issues, they chose to publish falsehoods, in an apparent abandonment of their journalistic responsibilities.” It said.

The author of the article, Andrew Norfolk has a well-documented history of promoting  Islamophobic sentiment and this article is another milestone in that effort.

Russia supports Qatar in hosting World Cup

The president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, has reiterated Russia’s support for Qatar in hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022, noting that he had discussed the issue with His Highness the Amir. He said Russia supports Qatar in hosting the championship and is ready to cooperate with it to overcome all difficulties, if any, to make the tournament a success.
