US Washington DC. Feb 3: The US has acknowledged Qatar as a very strong partner in the anti-Daesh coalition, and praised the role they have played as significant contributing partner in helping with the foreign fighters effort, the counter-financing, the problem of messaging, the de-legitimization.

US Secretary of State John Kerry made this observation while welcoming Dr. Khalid al-Attiyah, the foreign minister of Qatar here on Monday. We have worked very, very hard together on any number of issues, and I appreciate the many ways in which Qatar, the Emir, and Dr. Attiyah have made themselves available in order to be of assistance, he said adding most recently, they were particularly helpful with respect to Yemen and our efforts in the last few days to deal with some of the adjustments necessary to what has been happening there, and we’re grateful for that help.

Mr. Kerry said We have both economic and cultural links and ties, which we look forward to expanding. But as a member of the GCC and an important partner with respect to the entire Middle East region, we’re grateful for the help that Qatar has been willing to provide.

The Foreign Minister of Qatar described his US visit as a good opportunity to discuss “all our bilateral” issues and update each other and touch on the hot issue of the region.
