Havana, Nov 21 (RHC) Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, through his Twitter profile, greeted the people and government of Qatar, on the occasion of the celebration of the 22nd World Cup.

The foreign minister wrote "we salute the brotherly Qatari people and government for the great effort made to organize this event, the first time in an Arab country" and wished success during the development of this great event, scheduled until December 18.

On Sunday morning, the event was officially inaugurated, and the main message of the ceremony was the importance of the tournament as a meeting point for humanity.

The Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, delivered the welcoming speech, accompanied by FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

Tribute was also paid to previous World Cups, recalling the songs of previous editions and their mascots, with the appearance of La'eeb, the mascot of Qatar 2022.
