DOHA, June 23 (Reuters) - Qatar Petroleum, the state-owned oil and gas giant, has completed a restructuring which involved laying off some foreign staff, although no Qatari employees were let go, chief executive Saad Sherida al-Kaabi said on Tuesday.

The company has decided to exit all non-core businesses, Kaabi told a media briefing. He declined to say how many people were laid off.
