Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani on Thursday morning met at Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College with a number of Military Colleges’ Heads from Gulf, Arab and friendly countries on the occasion of their visit to the country to participate in the graduation ceremony of the college’s 12th batch of officer cadets.

They reviewed a number of topics of mutual interest during the meeting, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported.

Qatar’s Emir also patronized Thursday the graduation ceremony of the 12th class of officer cadets from the Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College.

Qatar’s Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani attended the graduation along with a number of Ministers and ranking officers in Qatar’s Armed Forces, the Ministry of Interior, and in military colleges of friendly countries.

Commander of the Ahmed Bin Mohammed Military College Brigadier Abdullah Abdulrahman Al Kaabi said the 12th class included 90 officer cadets for the Armed Forces, Ministry of Interior, Lekhwiya, Emiri Guard, and state security. He noted that the graduates received training in Qatar, Mongolia, Britain and France.

Al Kaabi added that the college cooperated with a number of other colleges abroad. Some of them were Kuwait’s Ali Al Sabah Military Academy and Britain’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. The latter carried out training in Qatar last November.

The Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College also worked on attracting high-quality cadres from different countries to provide the best service possible in terms of military academic programs and training techniques.

Qatar’s Emir then honored the honors students of the 12th class. The names included officer cadet Mohammed Khalfan Al Mansouri who ranked joint-first in military science, first in law, first in leadership and first in physical fitness. The second honors student Abdullah Hussein Al Marri and third Mohammed Fahid Al Faheeda, Ghanem Sultan Al Ghanem who came first in police science and Mohammed Mahfouth Mohammed who came first in information systems.

The Emir then honored Brigadier Hamad Ahmed Al Nuaimi, former Commander of Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College, in appreciation for his efforts in developing the college. He then viewed a performance of the Pakistani military band, which is comprised of 52 military personnel.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani also inaugurated Thursday the building of Rashash 400 at the Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College.

The Emir was briefed on Rashash 400’s features, including a hand grenade assault course, running track, and a military obstacles course.
