Trump signals Qatar crisis u-turn in Emir Tamim meeting

Push for local products ‘Qatari Potatoes Festival’ launched

US President Donald Trump welcomed the Emir of Qatar to the White House Tuesday, barely one year after alleging his government funded terrorism at a "high level".

Final summer season, Trump took the aspect of Saudi Arabia and different Persian Gulf nations of their ongoing diplomatic disaster with Qatar. "It's getting stopped and fast - very important". In a phone call last week, Mr. Trump credited the emir with working to counter terror financing and extremism.

The Emir told reporters the region could not tolerate "a war criminal" like Syrian President Bashar Al Assad and he said the region cannot accept people who support terrorism. "We are cooperating with the United States of America to stop funding of terrorism around the region".

Simon Henderson, a Gulf expert at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said the Trump administration would likely try to use the visit to persuade the Qataris that they and their opponents should put aside their disagreements to focus on what Trump considers the bigger threat in the region: Iran.

The two sides also affirmed their shared commitment to continued security cooperation, as the United States announced to sell Qatar Advanced Precision Kill Weapon Systems (APKWS) for an estimated cost of 300 million USA dollars also on Monday. "There are a lot of good things happening". "Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!" he said last June.

Hamilton demands more from his team
Verstappen is the rising star of Formula One, already the victor of three races and a driver Hamilton rates as a future champion. A controversy broke out after the Bahrain Grand Prix , where Hamilton called his Dutch rival a "dickhead" following a clash.

Emir Tamim also praised the United States in being "very helpful in supporting us during this blockade", and thanked the American people for being "very supportive".

"... Waxaan rabaa inaan u mahadnaqo Madaxweyne Trump si shaqsiyan isugu mashquuliyey xalinta khilaafka dalalka GCC (Khaliijka), wuxuuna sidoo kale gacan nasiiyey xiligii xayiraada nala saaray, waxaana sidoo kale u mahadnaqayaa shacabka Maraykanka taageerada ay nasiiyeen..." ayuu yiri Amiirka Qatar oo la hadlayey warbaahinta xiligii uu la kulmayey Trump.

Trump praised Qatar's military purchases, saying they buy "a lot of equipment from us, a lot of military airplanes, missiles".

The leaders are set to carry a gathering and dealing lunch that the White Home mentioned would concentrate on strengthening ties, together with safety and financial points.
