Doha: Following a meeting between Qatar and the US Secretary of State, Qatar has formally announced that it will play its part in the US diplomatic mission in Afghanistan and help protect its interests in the region.
The joint agreement was announced after a formal meeting between Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman II and US Secretary of State Anthony Blanken. Under it, Qatar will protect US interests in Afghanistan.
On the occasion, the Qatari Foreign Minister said, “We will continue to play our important role for the integrity, security and well-being of the people of Afghanistan.” I had created a diplomatic and strategic vacuum.
On the occasion, the US Secretary of State thanked Qatar for its role in Afghanistan and described Qatar as a “very important partner”.
“In this regard, Qatar will establish a corner of US interests at its embassy, which will closely monitor US diplomatic installations and other issues in Afghanistan,” said Anthony Blanken.
