Khalid bin Al Attiyah, the Minister of Foreign Affairs has traveled to London where he signed a joint defense agreement with Michael Fallon, the British Secretary of State for Defense.
The Qatari official met with General Nicholas Houghton— Chief of the Defense Staff–, Philip Hammond — the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs–, General Gordon Messenger— Deputy Chief of Defense Staff (Military Strategy & Operations).— , and Philip Dunne —Minister of State for Defense Procurement. The Qatari senior official also discussed the ways to purchase Euro fighter Typhoon jets and establishment of a British military base in Qatar.
In the recent months, Doha expressed its willingness to purchase the advanced Euro fighter Typhoon air fighters. Qatar hosts the headquarters of the United States Central Command in The Middle-East and the Horn of Africa. Paris also commands a small military base in neighboring UAE. Sheikh Tamim Al Thani, the Qatari Emir, in his recent visit to London met with the high-ranking British officials where he signed a treaty of mutual co-operation and security. Doha also agreed during the bilateral talks with the Turkish officials to provide Ankara with an air base in the Persian Gulf.
The silent competition between Qatar from one hand and KSA, UAE from the other hand, rendered these countries as an open field to western armies with the false assumption that western presence shall entail security for the feeble Arab sheikhdoms. With respect to the military items, Doha intends to procure; it sounds Qatari want to further protect themselves against their Saudi and Emirati neighbors.

Ptko added: of course, the increasing of Turkish security and the decreasing of explosions and bleeding’s in Turkey are the certain results of these actions.
