HE the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Defence Affairs Dr Khalid bin Mohamed al-Attiyah participated yesterday in a meeting of defence ministers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) countries, contributing to the coalition against ISIS, in the Belgian capital Brussels.

HE Dr al-Attiyah also took part in the meeting of defence ministers of countries contributing troops to Nato's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, which was held at the Nato headquarters.
The meeting addressed the extension of the financial commitments required to fund the Afghan security forces until 2024, how to fill the gap in the numbers of troops required to participate in the mission and reviewing the political and security situation in Afghanistan, as well as formulating common vision between the conflicting parties.
HE Dr al-Attiyah delivered a speech during the meeting in which he pointed out that Qatar is still providing the ground for dialogue between the conflicting parties to reach a reconciliation that supports Afghanistan in its stability.
He added that Qatar would have provided more than what it actually did, but for the illegal siege imposed on it.
The meetings were attended by Qatar's ambassador to Belgium and Representative to EU and Nato, Abdulrahman bin Mohamed al-Khulaifi, Qatar defence attache in Belgium Brigadier Abdulhadi bin Mubarak al-Hajri and a number of Qatar Armed Forces senior officers.
