Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the “gift” from the Qatar government to the Malaysian people was acquired during his meeting with Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah Nasser Khalifa Al Thani, who is also Interior Minister, last Sunday.

 

“The Qatar Prime Minister immediately approves my request after I informed him on problems facing Malaysians, especially those working in the country,” he said at a dinner with Malaysians in Doha.

 

Prior to this, Malaysians are required to sit and pass the driving test in Qatar to be able to drive in the left-hand driving country which takes at least four months and costs $2,500 Riyal Qatar.

 

Zahid arrived in Qatar last Saturday for a four-day working visit on the invitation from Sheikh Abdullah Nasser.
