France sold military equipment for billions of dollars

Just a day after giving a simulation flight for Bulgarian President Rumen Radev, Emmanuel Macron signed a strategic agreement for billions USD with the Emir Of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The agreement is commercial and concerns the sale of over 490 French land machines for the Qatar`s Land Army and Dessault Rafale fighter jets for the Qatar`s Air Force.

All this comes months after Saudi Arabia, The UAE, Bahrain and Egypt terminated any trade and political relantionships with Qatar, because of their accusations that the Emirate is funding terrorist organizations.

Another part of the deal is the order from Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani for impressive 50 aircrafts “Airbus321” with the possibility of another 30 additional aircraft, as well as a contract for construction and management of the underground subway worth over 3 billion euro, in the City of Doha, the Qatar`s capital city.
