Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Doha, the capital city of the State of Qatar are twin cities from now on.
The Mayor of Sarajevo Abdulah Skaka and the Mayor of Doha Jamal Matar Al Naimi have signed the Twinning Agreement between the two cities in a ceremony in Qatar. The signing was attended by the Chairman of the BiH Council of Ministers Denis Zvizdić and the Prime Minister of Qatar Sheikh Abdullah bin Naser bin Khalifa Al Thani.
The Twinning Agreement has set the framework for improvement of relations and extension of cooperation in different fields ranging from economy and development to culture and sport exchange between the two capital cities.
Doha is a city with over 1.3 million inhabitants and it is one of the world’s financial and investment centers. Establishing connections with Sarajevo is a big step towards strengthening ties not only between cities but also between peoples and countries as a whole.
The Mayor of Sarajevo Abdulah Skaka had stressed at the start of his mandate that the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina would strive to establish twin city relationships with state capital cities first and foremost, with the intention of achieving visible benefits for the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
