Qatar Airways’ BID – NO Comments

News   /  

Qatar has dropped a bid to move the headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organisation from Montreal to Doha, Arabian Business has reported.
Qatar last month proposed that the organization leave Montreal, where it has been based since it was created as a UN agency since 1947.
“Pleased to confirm Qatar has withdrawn its bid to move ICAO HQ from Montreal,” Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird said on Twitter.
Losing ICAO would have been a diplomatic embarrassment for Canada and Baird had campaigned hard against the idea.
ICAO spokesman Anthony Philbin said the Qatari embassy in Ottawa had sent a letter saying it was withdrawing the bid. He said the letter gave no reasons.
