Qatar does not, has not and will never support terrorism or finance any terrorist groups. They work closely with their allies to act on their commitment to defeat terrorism. The same cannot be said for the blockading nations.

Qatar works extensively with the US to support international counterterrorism efforts, engaging with agencies including the State Department, the US Department of Treasury, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Qatar is an active participant in the American-led coalition against Daesh, and host America’s most important military facility in the Middle East at Al Udeid Air Base, from which strikes against terrorist targets are launched.
