The four Arab states just claimed that the agreement between the United States and Qatar on combating and fighting terror funding is insufficient. This was confirmed by the said states last Tuesday which just also imposed sanctions on the said Arab country last week.

It can be recalled that the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited Doha, Qatar in order to mediate in the ongoing conflict in the Gulf area. The visit resulted in the creation of the memorandum of understanding which the four Arab states claimed was the result of repeated calls and pressure over the past years upon Qatar to stop fund terrorism.

According to Middle East Eye, the said memorandum of understanding was claimed insufficient by the four Arab states. Because of this, the said nations will be the ones to closely monitor the sincerity of the government of Qatar to battle and fight all forms and types of supporting and financing terrorism.

The four Arab states also added that any commitment made by the government of Qatar cannot be trusted basing on the previous agreements that have not been honored. It can be recalled that Qatar refused to honor and give in to the demands of the four Arab nations regarding the issue of supporting terrorism.

Meanwhile, the United States and Qatar just signed a memorandum of understanding to outline the future efforts of the Arab country to strengthen its fight against terrorism and to deal with issues regarding the allegation that the country is financing terrorism. The said agreement was discussed in Doha attended by the foreign minister of Qatar and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Apart from signing the agreement with Qatar, the U.S. government also called on the other countries which imposed siege against Qatar to also join them as signatories too. With this, Qatar is the first nation to sign a memorandum of agreement with the United States of America.

Meanwhile, according to the US government, the said signing of the agreement was not at all focused on the said conflict and crisis and the blockade which the four Arab states imposed against Qatar. Instead, all nations should unite for one goal and that is to eliminate terrorism from the face of the Earth.
