His Highness Sheikh Khalifa AI-Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar, makes an official visit to the Republic of Korea for three days, April 20-22, 1984 at the invitation of President Chun Doo Hwan.

Qatar is an oil-rich country on a 11,437sq. km. peninsula in the east of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering on Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates to the south.
