US should remove its airbase from Qatar: UAE ambassador

Recommended Posts

The Emirati ambassador to the US has called on Washington to consider the relocation of its airbase in Qatar and to pressure Doha over its alleged support of terrorism.

On Tuesday, Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba announced that the UAE would be presenting a list of actions it requires Qatar to carry out in order for ties to be returned to normal.

He noted that the list would include sanctions aimed at Qatari banks.

Otaiba added that both the UAE and the US have been permitting Qatar to engage in “bad behavior” for “a very long time.”  

The Emirati ambassador noted that the al-Udeid air base (seen below) was probably the reason why the US was not taking any action towards Qatar.

“The air base is a very nice insurance policy against any additional pressure,” he said.

Otaiba noted that the base could be relocated to the UAE as the required infrastructure is in place following a deal recently signed between the two countries.
