MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Granting visa-free travel for Qatari citizens to Russia will not just boost tourism but also contribute to the establishment of closer business ties and the growth of investment, Qatari Ambassador to Russia Fahad bin Mohammed Al Attiyah told TASS.
"We place great importance on the visa issue and are working to ensure that Qatari nationals could visit Russia without visas," the diplomat emphasized. "Russians coming to our country can do that. When people can travel freely, it is much easier for them to do business as well. We believe that it [the visa-free system] will boost investments."
The Qatari envoy noted that he spoke about lifting visa requirements for all people. "We expect to establish a visa-free environment for both tourists and businessmen," Al Attiyah stated.
