In a media statement release by the Embassy of the United States of America in Qatar, the Opening Session of the inaugural U.S.-Qatar Strategic Dialogue session will be live-streamed at 7:00 p.m. local time tonight, January 30, 2018.

Speaking at the Opening Session will be U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, and Defense Minister Khalid bin Muhammad al-Attiyah at the Department of State.

The Strategic Dialogue session comes shortly after a January 15, 2018 phone call between U.S. President Donald J. Trump, and HH the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in which the two parties discussed ways of strengthening their partnership to ‘bring more stability to the region and to defeat terrorism.’

Qatar was one of a few nations to move forward on a bilateral memorandum of understanding with the U.S. to counter terrorism and extremism.
