The United States will provide Qatar with the F-15QA fighter infrastructure services.


In November, 2016 in the United States approved a deal to sell Qatar 72's fourth-generation F-15QA fighters totaling $ 21,1 billion. In June 2017 reported Qatar's acquisition of F-15 fighters for $ 12 million.

The State Department decided to allow possible military sales to Qatar worth approximately 1,1 billion dollars to support the F-15QA multifunctional fighter program,
the report said.

The document notes that Qatar has requested assistance from the United States "in providing a program of multifunctional fighters, in particular the construction of infrastructure, runways, parking lots, hangars for storing ammunition, information technology support and other logistical and technical aspects of the program."

According to the defense cooperation agency, which is part of the State Department, "the contract will support the US foreign policy and the interests of their national security."

"Qatar is an important player in terms of political stability and economic development in the region," and "the proposed contract in the field of construction, cyber security and infrastructure to protect the military will not disturb the basic balance of military forces in the region," the agency added.

The document was sent to the US Congress, which also has to approve the deal.

    The concentration of armaments in the region is growing rapidly, it is not surprising that it will be used sooner or later. And only sellers are more profitable, as a rule the USA ... And by that they sold it, pitted everyone with everyone and observe with "concern", considering the revenue.

      "junk successfully pushed" ///

      So Russia is pushing its 4th generation well, in my opinion?
      Junk is being sorted by developing countries.

    “Qatar is an important player regarding political stability and economic development in the region”

    Here are crooks. First, the Saudis were incited by the company to Qatar, and how it came to making a profit, it was immediately an “important partner”. I drew attention to the fact that only a country should begin negotiations with Russia on trade deals, as soon as a little devil from the United States box.

      No wonder: the US is sleeping and seeing how to "squeeze" a Russian piece of the arms market. And their last sanctions are directed, including this. "Fair" competition, huh?

    Well now it’s clear where the dog rummaged laughing
    the severance of diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia and several other major regional players, including Egypt, as well as the deprivation of Qatar's ability to use land and air transport routes in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries, including Egypt, occurred suddenly and without warning. There was no visible conflict between Qatar and any of its neighboring countries, nor any provocative steps at the political level. Thus, it can be assumed that this step was a deliberate and planned action on the part of Saudi Arabia and its partners.
    Although the role of the United States in this crisis is not obvious, it is more than unlikely that Saudi Arabia could take such a decisive step without coordination with the United States, especially considering that this step took place right after the visit of a high delegation led by Trump to Saudi Arabia
