The Pakistani cabinet has given its approval to a draught deal that would allow the government to send troops to Qatar to help with security during the next FIFA World Cup in November. The draught deal for providing troops to Qatar for the huge event scheduled for November 21–December 18 was approved by the Cabinet on Monday, as stated by Pakistan’s Minister of Information Mariyum Aurangzeb. The agreement was approved by the Cabinet after the proposal to sign it was made by the Joint Staff Headquarters (JSHQ), and the foreign ministry and the Directorate General of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) both had no objections to it, according to The Express Tribune.

For the duration of the FIFA World Cup 2022, the agreement specifies the procedures for the deployment of troops to provide security support. A statement said, “The agreement seeks to clarify the obligations of the two sides, the precise specializations, and the number of security professionals to be supplied by Pakistan to assist in the security and safety activities.”

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, invited Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to visit his country for the first time.

The visit, which will begin on Tuesday, will allow Shehbaz to meet with the Qatari government and conduct extensive talks. According to the Prime Minister’s Office, both countries would look at ways to improve their connections across the board, with an eye toward expanding energy-related collaboration, strengthening commercial and investment links, and investigating new job prospects for Pakistanis in Qatar.

Doha’s “Stadium 974” is where the prime minister will be briefed on all the work done by the government of Qatar in preparation for the FIFA World Cup.

Ankara also trained Qatari security forces in advance of the World Cup, and in July, Turkey’s interior minister, Suleyman Soylu, said that his country would deploy 3,250 security officials to Qatar for the tournament.

NATO has already stated this year that it will also be providing security for the event.

As part of the tight cooperation between Qatar and NATO, the North Atlantic Alliance will provide support for the security aspects of the World Cup,’ the alliance said in a statement.

“We’ll be providing training to help you deal with the dangers of CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) substances. “It also stated that very important person (VIP) protection and IED (improvised explosive device) counter-training will also be a part of this,” it stated.
