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.
