Qatar, US sign $12B deal on purchase of F-15 jet fighters

While saying an eagerness to resolve the crisis was seen in meetings with Qatari officials, Cavusoglu added that those officials also wanted to be provided with proof of the accusations leveled against the country, Al Jazeera reported.

"We are receiving reports that specific individuals have already been summarily instructed to leave the country they are residing in, or have been ordered to return home by their own government", Hussein said.

Qatar hosts the biggest United States military base in the Middle East with more than 11,000 troops deployed or assigned to al-Udeid Air Base. Qatar hosts the regional headquarters for U.S. Central Command, which includes a state-of-the-art air base the U.S. depends on to target "Islamic State".

Qatar is facing an economic and diplomatic boycott by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies who cut ties last week, in the worst rift among Gulf Arab states in years.

A statement to CNN from the Pentagon says the agreement will "increase security cooperation and interoperability between the United States and Qatar". "We must lay these out in order to solve this problem".

The F-15 agreement would lead to "closer strategic collaboration in our fight to counter violent extremism and promote peace and stability in our region and beyond", according to the defence ministry.

Turkey seeks end to Qatar crisis by end of Ramadan
Qatar has called the accusations baseless and have described the measures as a "siege" harmful to ordinary people there. Trump on June 9 said Qatar "has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level".

It is also to be noted that President Donald Trump has criticised Qatar on one hand but on the other hand, he does not seem to be caring as to who gets the deal as long as United States of America gets money which has come under wide criticism among the political circle.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, on a Gulf tour trying to help broker an end to the crisis, defended the deal.

Qatar, for its part, has denied the accusations, calling the moves to diplomatically isolate it "unjustified".

Turkey has said that it stands with the tiny Gulf state against sanctions and has urged Riyadh to take the lead in finding a solution to the crisis.
