Trump’s priority is to stop Doha from funding terrorist groups

Published: Updated:

President Donald Trump’s priority with regard to Qatar crisis is to stop Doha from funding terrorist groups, US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has said.

Speaking on Wednesday at the hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Haley said that, “the crisis is a good opportunity to urge Doha to stop supporting those groups and Hamas and to inform Doha to stop funding groups that US does not want to see in the region.”

She added that Washington has a military base in Doha, but Trump is paying more attention on eliminating ISIS and terrorism.

Replying to a question whether Muslim Brotherhood was part of the Middle East solution, Haley said: “I think that the subject has not been discussed with the US administration. I am not a fan of the Muslim Brotherhood, so I think they tend to be part of the problem of the region rather the solution.”
