France And Qatar Sign Deals Worth EUR12 billion During Macron Visit”

During his one-day trip in Qatar, Macron will also visit the French troops stationed in the country at the Al-Udeid air base, which is also the home to some 10,000 USA troops.

Macron said the continuing defeat of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria meant that the funding of terrorist groups was likely to shift from natural resources, such as oil, to new methods.

Macron smiled and shook hands with the French and American soldiers who greeted him at the base before walking into a meeting with the base's top commanders.

He made the prediction at a joint news conference with Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani while on an official visit to Doha.

Macron's visit to Doha comes a few days after a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in Kuwait, where several leaders skipped the meeting amid a dispute between member state Qatar and a Saudi-led bloc.

France and Qatar signed commercial contracts worth around 12 billion euros (£10.6 billion) on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said, adding that the deals underscored the close relationship between the two countries.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinians claim the city's eastern sector, which Israel took control of during the 1967 Six-Day War, as the capital of a future independent state.
