During that visit, the King praised Qatar for taking on the challenge of organizing the World Cup and its advances in civil rights and public liberties and gave the emir a National Team shirt.
For his part, Al Thani announced that his country was going to increase investment in Spain by 4,720 million euros in the coming years due to its confidence in the Spanish economy.
