US Military Pauses Exercises With Gulf States For Shared Regional Interests

The US military has decided to halt a few exercises with Gulf states over the ongoing crisis targeting Qatar.

“We are opting out of some military exercises out of respect for the concept of inclusiveness and shared regional interests,” US Central Command said on Friday.

Colonel John Thomas, a Central Command spokesman, added in a statement: “We will continue to encourage all partners to work together toward the sort of common solutions that enable security and stability in the region.”

The Saudi led bloc has severed ties with Qatar after accusing it of supporting terrorism, however, Qatar has strongly denied the claim and said it was instead fighting terrorism at every given opportunity.
