The US State Department has said Qatar is one of the closest military allies of the United States in the region.
In a statement on Wednesday, the US State Department said the US counterterrorism coordinator Ambassador Nathan A Sales will arrive in Doha to thank Qatar for its commitment to combating global terrorism and its dedication to a robust partnership with the US on counterterrorism and security.
Sales will meet with Attorney General HE Ali bin Fetais Al Marri and other senior government officials to discuss Qatar’s role as a strong partner in combating the financing of terrorism, including implementation of its new Anti-Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation. Sales will also discuss Qatar’s active participation in the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS.
Qatar is one of the United States’ closest military allies in the region. Al-Udeid Air Base is home to the Combined Air Operation Center, which hosts 18 nations and is responsible for all Coalition air operations in the Middle East and Central Asia.
