For the second time this year, an Indian vice president was in Qatar.

Only a few months after his predecessor M Venkaiah Naidu's official visit to the emirate, Jagdeep Dhankhar joined Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and other dignitaries from around the world at the inauguration of the FIFA World Cup at the Al Bayt stadium in Qatar on Sunday.
