Trump praises Qatar emir's visit

Trump praises Qatar emir's visit

"Qatar is an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Persian Gulf region". The day before the emir's visit, the administration told Congress that it plans to approve a deal to sell $300 million in "Advanced Precision Kill Weapon Systems" to Qatar, including 5,000 high-explosive warheads and the same number of rocket motors.

Trump and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates agreed on Friday to push for unity among Gulf nations, the White House said, amid a bitter standoff between Qatar and other USA allies in the region.

Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates have led an economic blockade of Qatar for its alleged support of terror and cozy relations with Iran.

Last summer, Trump took the side of Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf countries in their ongoing diplomatic crisis with Qatar.

Qatar has denied any wrongdoing and has taken steps to address the USA concerns, including allowing Treasury Department officials into its central bank to improve accountability for controls to prevent terror funding.

Amiirka dalka Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani oo booqasho ku jooga dalka Maraykanka ayaa kulankii uu la yeeshay Madaxweynaha Maraykanka Donald Trump uga hadlay khilaafka u dhaxeeya dalalka Khaliijka.

Saudi and Emirati officials have accused Thani's government of cozying up to Iran and funding terrorist groups.

President Donald Trump is welcoming the ruling emir of Qatar to the White House. The U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency said that the laser-guided rockets would help Qatar modernize its military and "will not alter the basic military balance in the region".

In a related development, Saudi Arabia could consider a proposal to dig a maritime canal along the kingdom's border with Qatar, turning the peninsula-nation into an island and transforming its only land border into a military zone and nuclear waste site, state-linked Saudi newspapers reported Monday. He says Trump's role "is very vital to end the crisis in the region".

Trump greeted Qatar's Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani Tuesday.

Qatar's neighbors had also been infuriated by its willingness to host dissidents from across the Gulf and to allow broadcasts critical of them by Doha-based Al Jazeera.
