His Excellency the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Defence Affairs Dr Khalid bin Mohamed al Attiyah arrived in Italy yesterday.

He held official talks with Italian counterpart, the Minister of Defence, Lorenzo Guerini.

The meeting looked into Qatar-Italy relations, particularly in the military and defense fields. The two ministers spoke about ways to further consolidate and develop defense and military cooperation.

The Commander of the Qatari Amiri Naval Forces Staff Major General (Navy) Abdullah Hassan Al Sulaiti, and Qatar's military attache in Italy Brigadier General (Navy) Hilal Ali Al Mohannadi, as well as Qatar's ambassador to Italy Abdulaziz bin Ahmed Al Maliki Al Juhani also joined the meeting in addition to several senior officers in Qatari Armed Forces.
