Qatar Taps Trump-Connected Ballard for $2.1M Push

Top European rights official hails Qatar’s reforms in human rights

Qatar denies all these prices.

"... Ma u dulqaadan doono dadka maalgeliya falalka argagaxisada..."ayuu yiri Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani".

Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, in his turn, has stated that he agrees with US President Donald Trump that chemical attacks allegedly conducted by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad should not be tolerated.

The meeting between the U.S. president and Qatar Emir Tamim al-Thani marks a major shift in the relationship between the two countries.

Led by United States allies Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Qatar's regional rivals launched a diplomatic and trade blockade against Doha a year ago, and Trump initially appeared to take Riyadh's side. Since then, Qatar has mounted an aggressive and well-funded campaign to rehabilitate its image in the US and prove it's a reliable American partner.

The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, cut off travel and trade ties with Qatar last June, accusing it of supporting terrorism and their arch-rival Iran.

Trump went on to note Qatar's purchases of U.S. weaponry, saying they buy "a lot of equipment from us, a lot of military airplanes, missiles". Qatar denies that cost however has taken steps to deal with USA considerations.

President Donald Trump is welcoming the ruling emir of Qatar to the White House.

A top fundraiser for Trump also filed a lawsuit last month against Qatar and lobbyists working for the state, alleging they hacked his and his wife's emails as part of the ongoing dispute.

The two leaders agreed in a telephone call that members of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council "can and should do more to increase coordination with each other and with the United States", the White House said in a statement.

"We are working together in the face of terrorism and we are looking at ways to develop this relationship", he continued, adding that Qatar hosts more than 10,000 U.S. soldiers at an army base.

The emir will also be joining the president for a working lunch that the White House said would focus on security and economic issues.

"We are still doing very well and will make sure economic growth outpaces that of the region", Finance Minister Ali Sherif al-Emadi said according to US News, forecasting private sector growth of 4 percent in 2018.

Sheikh Tamim said his nation hosts more than 10,000 US servicemen and women and work with Washington in countering terrorism.
