SHEIKH TAMIM MEETS US ENVOYS IN QATAR
Envoys of the US Secretary of State, including retired General Anthony Zinni paid an official visit to the Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani at Al Bahr Palace in March. Sheikh Tamim also met up with the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Arabian Gulf Affairs, Tim Lenderking, and the accompanying delegation.
Apart from regional and international affairs, strategic relations between Qatar and the US were discussed during the meeting.
Zinni also visited Kuwait and met its Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah and other Kuwaiti leaders. The talks focused on “the Gulf crisis and efforts to contain it, in addition to the arrangements for the upcoming US-GCC Summit in May”.
According to earlier reports, Trump wants to bring Gulf leaders to Camp David for a show of solidarity with the US. But he wants a breakthrough in the Gulf crisis before the potential summit of the six-country Gulf Cooperation Council.
