Clinton To Visit Qatar, Saudi Arabia

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton heads to Qatar and Saudi Arabia this weekend amid efforts to boost ties with Muslim nations, revive Arab-Israeli peace talks and tackle security concerns.

During the February 13-16 trip, Clinton is scheduled to attend the US-Islamic World Forum on Sunday in Qatar and meet the tiny Gulf state’s emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said.

The chief US diplomat will also meet Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim Al-Thani, who plays a dual role as Qatar’s prime minister and foreign minister, Crowley added in a statement on Tuesday.

At the US-Islamic forum in Doha two years ago, delegates voiced support for then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, although some warned against expecting any radical policy change should he win the White House.
