Qatar’s leader visits Britain for talks with David Cameron, Queen Elizabeth II
According to the AP, “The Emir of Qatar, the ruler of a tiny, oil-rich nation in the Persian Gulf, is visiting Britain for talks with Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister David Cameron. Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani began his three-day visit Tuesday with Sheika Mozah bint Nasser al-Missned, the most high-profile of his three wives. Britain is seeking closer ties with Qatar, a British protectorate until 1971, as it attempts to woo new investors.
In May, Qatar Investment Authority — the country’s sovereign wealth fund — bought London’s iconic Harrods department store.
The emir said in an interview published Monday in the Financial Times that Qatar would also be interested in acquiring Britain’s famed auction house Christie’s.”
