Trump welcomes emir of Qatar to White House

Mattis welcomed the emir of Qatar to the Pentagon today for a meeting to reaffirm the strategic security partnership between the USA and Qatar. Trump had followed the lead of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in taking a hard line against Qatar, saying the country needed to scale back ties with Iran and stop funding extremism.

Trump hasn't repeated that cost lately and Qatar has since taken steps to deal with USA considerations.

Qatar's Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani will join Trump for a midday meeting and working lunch Tuesday that the White House said will focus on strengthening ties.

Trump says in the Oval Office that "we're making sure that terrorism funding is stopped" in the region.

President Donald Trump vouched publicly on Tuesday for Qatar's efforts to stop the funding of terrorism, reversing his past critique and lending presidential credence to Qatari claims that it's been unfairly maligned by its Persian Gulf rivals.

Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani addresses allegations the country supported terrorism.

He added, "Those countries are stopping the funding of terrorism that includes UAE, it includes Saudi Arabia, it includes Qatar and others".

In a telephone name final week, Trump credited the emir with working to counter terror financing and extremism. Qatar denies that cost however has taken steps to deal with US considerations.
