Interior Minister Nancy Faeser will not travel to Qatar with Luise Amtsberg, the German government’s human rights commissioner, on Monday.

In a statement released by the foreign ministry on Sunday, Ms. Amtsberg said that Qatar’s vehement protests about Ms. Faeser’s negative remarks were the reason behind her choice.

The government of the Middle Eastern nation then delivered a letter of disapproval to the German ambassador on Friday.

“The developments this weekend have made it clear to me how difficult it is in the current situation in the run-up to the football World Cup to hold the open and critical talks I planned about the human rights situation in Qatar with the Qatari government,” Ms Amtsberg said. “Recognising Qatar’s growing role as a regional and global player, international pressure and our efforts to protect human rights remain central after the World Cup,” She stated that she had a later date set aside to travel to Qatar.

The treatment of migrant workers, the criminalization of homosexuality, and sustainability in the run-up to the World Cup from November 20 to December 18 have all drawn criticism for Qatar.

Everyone is invited to attend the competition, according to Qatar, which has announced that it has updated its labor laws.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Than, the emir of Qatar, recently lashed out at the detractors, accusing them of mounting a “unprecedented campaign” against the host country and making false accusations.

On Monday and Tuesday, Ms. Faeser will travel to Qatar along with Bernd Neuendorf, the president of the German Football Federation, for talks focused on human rights.

When she claimed that Germany’s selection of Qatar as the World Cup hosts was “a totally tough award,” Ms. Faeser infuriated Qatar.

According to her, the German government considers sustainability and respect for human rights to be crucial prize criteria.

Faeser had said, “There are criteria that must be met, and then it would be better if it (the tournament) wasn’t awarded to such states.”

On Friday, Qatar expressed its “disappointment” and “complete rejection” of the minister’s comments, calling them “against diplomatic norms and convention.”
