Live: panda house is a key attraction at qatar world cup

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Panda House is a key attraction at Qatar World Cup” – below is their description.

Qatar opened the impressive Panda House at Al Khor Park just in time for the 2022 World Cup. The two pandas arrived just before the tournament kicked off. The three year old female Si Hai and four year old male Jing Jing have been given two Arab names, Thuraya and Suhail respectively, meaning two stars in the sky in Arabic culture. With this, Qatar becomes the first country in the Middle East to have giant pandas and the 20th in the world. Follow CGTN’s Dan Williams to find out more. #CGTNonsite
