DOHA: Several projects in the field of cultural diplomacy were discussed at a meeting between Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara [see], and Dr Sheref Atesh, President of Yunus Emra Institute (YEI) and Head of Global Public Diplomacy [JB emphasis]Network (GPDNet), yesterday in Ankara, Turkey.

A preliminary plan for a cooperative programme in public diplomacy between Cultural Village Foundation-Katara and GPDNet was among the topics discussed during the meeting which was held in the framework of a cultural cooperation between Katara and YEI.

This collaboration comes within the framework of a memorandum of cooperation signed by Katara and YEI last year to enhance communication and exchange of experiences and knowledge in the field of international cultural diplomacy through the implementation of bilateral projects and support of joint programs.

The programmes aim to broaden relations between nations and peoples in order to deepen understanding and promote peace around the world.

Last year, Qatar, represented by Katara, became the first Arab country to be granted full membership of GPDNet.
