France will deploy military in Qatar because of the "weakening role" of the United States

53

Doha and Paris reached an agreement that would regulate the status of the French military in the emirate, reports Middle East Monitor.


A few days ago, senior Qatari officials met with French Defense Minister Florence Parley to discuss a number of issues, including the development of bilateral ties amid increasing tensions in the Persian Gulf region. Following the meeting, an agreement was signed on the legal status of the deployment of the French armed forces in this Middle Eastern country.

Currently, only American and British troops are located in Qatar, located mainly at the base of El Udeid.

Paris is increasingly striving to play a more active role in the Gulf region, the newspaper notes. And it's not just about Qatar. For example, France will provide the Saudis with radars to detect low-altitude targets. France itself often blames Washington for trying to "retreat" from the Middle East, notes its "weakening role" in the region.

Tensions [...] increased after Iran seized European ships and destroyed an American drone. Recently, many believe that Iran is behind a recent attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia

- writes Middle East Monitor.

According to the publication, Ms. Parley said France was forced to intervene because of the diminishing role of the United States in the Middle East.

      But France has no other problems, for example, the loss of tens of billions of dollars from the protests of the Yellow Vests, because they are also concerned about the weakening "role of the United States" which, by the way, arranged these protests, because Macron decided to create an independent European Union army instead of the NATO .. .

        France has its own problems ... a cart and a small cart, I repeat ... in Paris - half of the blocks are closed to the French and tourists. Yellow vests .... I will not paint, the French military contingents - Afghanistan, Mali, Syria, Iraq - now also Qatar! His ideas about the European Army. Enough?

                        what wealth are you talking about? under the Communists, there were two types of wealth - spiritual (among the majority of the population) and illegally acquired (criminally punishable). You do not say that under the communists were all beggars?

            You can, Paris is actually very good when compared with Marsay. Their politicians are more like “COLONAL GOVERNMENTS” than French politicians. The question is who do they work for? Today, all the media speak of migrants as an example in Germany, but why are they silent about France. France itself is a dangerous country for a civil war, Mrs. Merkel has yet to work to reach them. Macron sends the military to Siriu, Qatar Libiu, etc. across Africa, and France rots inside and quickly.
            POLICE IN PARIS IS AFRAID OF GOING TO DETERMINE THE QUARTER !!! Only if there is almost a military operation with a lot of equipment. In Marseille, most of the police ARAPI, the French do nothing there!

              Peskov’s daughter is probably suffering there.

              Instead of worries about the difficulties of life in Paris, it’s better to get the Russian language. Or learn how to use spelling.

The most important thing is to understand the day! I understand Russian as well as Belorussky, as well as Krainsky! And Polish and Czechs and Words and Bulgarian and so on. smile In addition, young people should see different countries from the USA to Japan and live there enough to get to know the people and traditions! This will help them understand life a lot!

          But blacks in the 2-3 generation also stop making children, like the indigenous ones.
