Qatar and America agrees to expand al-Ubeid Air Base hosting over 10,000 US Troops

Date:

Doha – Qatar and United States signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Sunday to expand Qatar’s Al-Ubeid Air Base which hosts around 10,000 American Troops.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani agreed in a joint press conference struck the deal.

“We’re all more powerful when we’re working together. Disputes between countries that have a shared objective are never helpful,” said Pompeo.

He was referring to the boycott imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt.

Pompeo expressed that United States relations towards Qatar will stay unchanged, despite Qatar has been one of the largest terror-sponsor in the region.

Saudi Arabia accused Qatar for backing Hamas, and other terrorist organizations, and for sponsoring schism across the middle-East logistically and through media.
