Qatar Voices Frustration Over U.S. Response to Request to Buy Drones

WASHINGTON—The Qatari govt, which has aided in the evacuation of tens of 1000’s of Afghans and backed American counterterrorism operations in the Center East, is voicing stress with the Biden administration for sluggish-strolling a request to purchase sophisticated drones from the U.S.

The govt of Qatar built a formal request more than a yr ago to purchase 4 armed MQ-9B Predator drones. The Point out Office has yet to act on the Qatari drone request and officials declined to say why.
