Qatar: Emir Tamim, Pompeo, blockade and US protection

Qatari Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani received US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on 13/1/19 at his palace in Doha.

Pompeo was on visit to Doha to head the US delegation to the 2nd round of the US-Qatar Strategic Dialogue and sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Qatar regarding the expansion and renovation of the Al-Udeid air base.

His visit took place as Qatar keeps finding itself in an ongoing blockade, set in motion by four blockading nations: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain.

Tactical Report has prepared a 342-word report to shed light on Emir Tamim-Pompeo meeting and tell what about the outcome notably on what concerns the US protection of Qatar.
