DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) – Qatar’s preparations for the 2022 football World Cup are fully on track after it fixed supply lines briefly disrupted last year by a boycott by its Gulf neighbours, its foreign minister has said.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, who is also deputy prime minister, said Qatar’s economy was now growing much faster than anticipated and the huge gas exporter was well prepared to withstand the crisis in relations with its neighbours.

He also said the country was still counting on strong support from Donald Trump to help solve the crisis and has filed legal complaints with regulators against what it sees as its currency and manipulations by neighbours.

Qatar’s World Cup has been controversial as the nation have never before competed in the showcase.
