The ANOC, headed by Kuwaiti Sheik Ahmad al-Fahad al-Sabah – whose nation has not sponsored the bar, “communicated its expectation that the worldwide games development in Qatar would not be jeopardized by the geopolitical circumstance in the Gulf area”.

“The Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) and the neighboring National Olympic Committees (NOCs) in the Gulf district are important accomplices to the world’s Olympic Movement and have fundamentally created dons in their nations as of late,” it said in an announcement.

“Game has likewise assumed a key part in opening up the district to the world. A year ago, the QOC united the world’s NOCs in Doha and facilitated a fabulous ANOC General Assembly and ANOC Awards.

“Under the initiative of His Highness Sheik Tamim canister Hamad al-Thani, Qatar has shown itself to be an extremely ready and proficient host of worldwide games occasions and will take the world back to the area when it has the 2019 IAAF World Championships, the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the 2023 FINA World Championships and other universal games occasions.”

The ANOC included that it “earnestly trusts that the geopolitical circumstance with respect to Qatar will be settled soon and that it won’t affect on the mind blowing esteem that Qatar conveys to the games world”.
