US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Arab Gulf Affairs, Daniel Benaim, stressed the role that Qatar played in partnership with the United States to deserve its designation as a major partner outside NATO.

He said in an interview with “Al-Hurra” channel, within the “Capital of Decision” program, that “the United States did not receive any objection from Saudi Arabia or the UAE to this designation.”

“I haven’t heard of dissatisfaction. But I think it’s fair to say that we will work with every country to make sure that they feel recognized and appreciated by the United States. In Saudi Arabia and the UAE this includes working daily and hour by hour to make sure that they are safe from the threat of Houthi missiles and marches,” he added.

He pointed out that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are “key allies outside NATO” and this is very important, but we are also working as partners and allies on the battlefield to make sure that Saudi Arabia and the UAE can defend themselves from these threats.

In response to the criticism of some in the American interior about classifying Qatar as a major ally of the United States, while providing “support for Hamas, al-Qaeda and the Taliban,” Benaim said, “We are working with Qatar and have extensive talks on each of these relations, and it is true that Qatar has relations that are different from The United States. We engage extensively with them to make sure that these relations go in a way that we are mutually comfortable with, and to benefit from, for example, Qatar’s relationship with the Taliban by assigning them to look after our interests and engage in necessary diplomacy.

“We saw the same things when it came to the fighting that took place between Israel and Hamas earlier last year, and the pursuit of a ceasefire. It is important that these unique relations are approached responsibly. And we have a very good dialogue with Qatar on how to do that.” “.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Benaim expressed the United States’ concern about the attacks on the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

He stressed, “These attacks are completely unacceptable, and they endanger tens of thousands of Americans in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, where the attacks have targeted schools, mosques, buildings and civilian infrastructure. They are totally unacceptable, and we are working intensively and by all possible means with our partners to ensure that they have what They need it to defend themselves, to the fullest extent possible.”

“We are now seeing through sending military forces to the UAE in recent days, a destroyer and guided-missile carrier USS Cole, and a fifth generation of aircraft,” Benayem said.

Benayem commented on the reports that the rallies that targeted the UAE were launched recently from Iraqi territory, noting that “he is aware of these reports” and they “confirm our great fears that Iran plays a destructive and negative role in terms of regional security, and this is what we see in Yemen always.” By providing Iranian equipment to the Houthis, and other forms of support.

“If the reports are correct, this would be an additional worrying development about a dynamic that we are well aware of and are working to respond to,” he added.

A little-known armed group has claimed responsibility for an attempt to target the UAE with drones, after a wave of attacks by Yemeni rebels against the Gulf state, according to Agence France-Presse.

The “Lawwad al-Wa’ad al-Haqq” group, which is believed to be linked to Iraqi organizations close to Iran, said in a statement, Wednesday, published on social media, that it attacked the capital, Abu Dhabi, with four drones.

And the UAE Ministry of Defense had announced in a statement before “the interception and destruction of 3 hostile drones that penetrated the country’s airspace at dawn on Wednesday, far from populated areas.”

The interview of the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Arab Gulf Affairs, Daniel Benaim, will be broadcast in full, Friday, at eight and five minutes GMT on Al-Hurra channel, within the program “The Capital of Decision”.
