The United States remains deeply committed to its bilateral relationship with Qatar on a range of issues that includes military co-operation, trade and investment, education, and strengthening workers’ rights, the US embassy’s charge d’affaires William Grant said on Tuesday.
In a statement, he pointed out that His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in his speech to the Advisory Council, referred to the Memorandum of Understanding between the US and Qatar to disable terror financing flows and intensify counterterrorism efforts.
“Qatar has made considerable progress on this MoU – progress that was commended at last week’s US-Qatar Counterterrorism Dialogue in Washington, DC,” Grant stated.
“His Highness the Emir also underscored Qatar’s determination to work with its neighbours to establish peace and security in the region – objectives the US also shares.
“In the coming year, the US and Qatar will continue engaging in high-level forums and dialogues that touch upon many areas of this bilateral partnership,” added Grant.
