Buhari, Emir of Qatar in closed door meeting at Aso Villa



President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met behind closed doors with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hammad Al-Thani, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The emir, upon arrival to the Villa at about 12.15pm, was received by Buhari at the forecourt of the State House.

Buhari introduced some members of his cabinet and aides to the emir, who also inspected a guard of honour mounted by the Guards Brigade.

The Nigerian leader had, in February, 2016, visited Qatar, where he held bilateral meeting with the emir.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Nigeria and Qatar signed bilateral agreements, including the agreement on Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with Respect to Taxes Income and four others.

Buhari and the emir are expected to sign some agreements at the end of the meeting.
