HH The Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani met with US President Donald Trump during his official visit to the USA. 

Trump praised his country’s ties with Qatar as the two leaders discussed a range of issues including the ongoing blockade of Qatar.

“The US and Qatar have been great friends in so many ways and are working very well together,” Trump told reporters, after the meeting, according to Al Jazeera.

“We’re working on unity in that part of the Middle East and I think it’s working out very well. There’re lot of good things happening,” he added.

“We’re making sure that terrorism funding is stopped in the countries that we’re really related to, because I feel related,” Trump was quoted as saying by the New York Times.

“But those countries are stopping the funding of terrorism, and that includes U.A.E. and it includes Saudi Arabia, it includes Qatar and others. A lot of countries were funding terrorism and we’re stopping it,” he said.

HH The Emir tweeted out a message speaking about the success of his meeting with Trump and their mutual agreement of a fast resolution to the Gulf crisis through dialogues.

Sheikh Tamim hailed Trump’s role in trying to find a solution to the ongoing Gulf rift.

“I would like to thank the president for him being involved personally in solving the GCC crisis,” he said.

“He's been very helpful, he’s been supporting us during this blockade and I would also like to thank the American people for being very supportive. And his [Trump's] role is very vital to end this crisis in our region,” Sheikh Tamim added. 

HH The Emir stressed that Qatar does not and will not tolerate people who support and fund terrorism, reported Gulf Times.

He explained that Qatar cooperates with the USA to stop the funding of terrorism around the region. Sheikh Tamim described the military cooperation between the two countries as solid and strong, reaffirming that Al Udeid Airbase is the heart of operations in fighting terrorism, and noting that it has been a very successful campaign against terrorist groups in the region.

HH the Emir also said that the Qatari-US relations were strong and well established for more than 45 years, highlighting that the economic cooperation between the two countries is over $125bn strong and the two countries are looking forward to double this cooperation in the coming years, according to The Peninsula.
