Qatar purchases 12 French fighter jets

Qatar signs €12B-worth of deals with France

Qatar signs €12B-worth of deals with France

The Gulf crisis is the worst to hit the region since the establishment of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in 1981.

Qatar has been suffering from an ongoing blockade imposed on it since June 5 by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

The four countries also cut off all air and sea links to Qatar and closed the only land terminal for the tiny peninsula. Earlier this week, a Gulf Cooperation Council meeting in Kuwait failed to bring the standoff any closer to a resolution. Qatar has denied the allegations and repeatedly called for a negotiated settlement.

"Qatar's sovereignty is above all considerations".

It was also announced that the two sides were negotiating over the purchase of 300 VBCI armored vehicles from French firm Nexter and a contract worth some 3 billion euros (3.54 billion US dollars) over the management of the Doha metro for 20 years.

Airbus has announced the sale of a further 50 A320 passenger jets to the Middle East state of Qatar.
