Qatar emir attends anti-corruption summit in Rwanda, a day before key GCC meet

Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim Al-Thani will attend an anti-corruption summit in Rwanda on Monday, putting a question mark over whether he will attend a breakthrough GCC summit in Riyadh the following day.

Sheikh Tamim will present an international anti-corruption excellence award, which is named after the Qatari emir, in the Rwandan capital, Kigali on Monday.

The emir will also commend President Paul Kagame’s efforts in fighting graft, which has made Rwanda one of the least corrupt countries in Africa.

But his presence in Rwanda, means it is yet known whether Emir Tamim will attend the breakthrough GCC summit in Riyadh on Tuesday.

Last week, King Salman of Saudi Arabia invited Sheikh Tamim to the GCC summit.

Qatar has been under blockade by three GCC states – Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE – since June 2017, which has put the whole Gulf union project in jeapordy.
