“Everyone will feel safe in Qatar,” Al-Khater said.
“We have always said that everyone is welcome here. What we ask for is respect for our culture,” Nasser Al-Khater answered in the interview when asked if fans will be allowed to carry the rainbow flag on the street.
The journalist wanted to make sure of Al-Kahter’s statement and asked him to send a message to the LGBTQ+ collective.
“Everyone is welcome here and everyone will feel safe in Qatar”, stressed Al-Khater.
“Does that include gay fans if they carry the flags in public, would that be OK?” the reporter continued. “Yes,” assured Al-Khater.
