Qatar has no deal with Russia over S-400 missiles – emir

Qatar’s emir said his country has not yet reached a deal for the purchase of Russia’s most advanced air-defense missile system, AP reported. Speaking at a news conference in Paris on Friday, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said “It’s true we discussed it… Until now, there’s nothing.” French newspaper Le Monde reported last month that Saudi Arabia asked Paris to help prevent Qatar from buying Russia’s S-400 missile system. Saudi King Salman reportedly expressed his concerns over the potential deal in a letter to French President Emmanuel Macron.
