Qatar which is under diplomatic troubles in the Arabian peninsula with Saudi, UAE,Kuwait, Bahrain cutting their ties with the nation has signed a military pact with the U.S for USD12 Billion where it would be acquiring F-15 Fighter Jets.

President Trump who signed a multi-billion dollar defence deal when he toured Saudi Arabia and other Arabian nations just last week seems to be enjoying the trouble brewing in the region since USA is reaping the benefits by selling arms and ammunition to the both the parties concerned.

It is also to be noted that President Donald Trump has criticised Qatar on one hand but on the other hand, he does not seem to be caring as to who gets the deal as long as USA gets money which has come under wide criticism among the political circle.

U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and authorities from the Qatar have signed the agreement for the purchase of 36 fighter jets. Just in November last year, U.S. has approved a possible sale of F-15QA aircraft to Qatar for $21.1 billion where it can get upto 72 fighter aircrafts.

Boeing which is the maker of these fighter planes did not comment on the controversial sale.
