Carrot and Stick: Real Reason Behind US Contradictory Stance on Qatar Row
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The ongoing row between Qatar and other Gulf states did not affect the relations between Doha and Washington, and the countries will conduct joint military exercises soon, Minister of State for Defense Affairs Khalid Attiyah said Monday.

"I personally made a lot of efforts to ensure that Qatar's relations with Washington and Ankara were strong and constantly evolving… I do not think that the US will refuse to cooperate with Qatar in the fight against terrorism. Qatar and the United States are allies and partners in the international anti-terrorist coalition. Our relations are friendly and strong… Qatar, Turkey and the US regularly conduct joint military exercises in Qatar, and soon the next joint military exercises of the three countries (Qatar, the United States and Turkey) will begin," the minister told the RT broadcaster in an interview on Monday.

In mid-June, two US Navy ships took part in joint exercises with the ships of the Qatari Emiri Navy. The exercise plan provided for training firing, launch of missiles, as well as joint actions with Qatari and US air forces, including setting up the supply of ships and evacuating the victims with helicopters.
