Obama to meet with Qatar's emir at White House next week

US President Barack Obama will meet with Qatar's emir on Tuesday to discuss political, economic and security issues, the White House said on Friday.
The visit by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani comes as Qatar and another US ally in the Middle East, Egypt, have traded barbs in a dispute over Egyptian air strikes on Islamic State targets in Libya, with Qatar recalling its ambassador from Cairo.
