Qatar signs €12B-worth of deals with France

The one-day visit aims at discussing the Gulf dispute as well as counter-terrorism efforts.

The signed contracts cover defense, armaments, the operation and maintenance of metros and tramways, and soil pollution treatment. "In total, it amounts to almost 12 billion euros which was signed today and which underlines the closeness of our relations", Macron said at a press conference with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

Also announced was the award of a contract to a French rail consortium to build and operate the metro in the Qatari capital Doha, and the purchase of 490 armoured vehicles from defence firm Nexter.

Al-Udeid, the largest USA air base in the region, plays a key role in America's fight against the Islamic State group and it is from where the air campaign against jihadists has been directed.

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.

"We are ready to solve the dispute", Tamim said, adding this would only be possible through dialogue.
