Qatar's Emir held talks Monday with the Somali president in Doha and pledged support for the East African country, amid tensions with the UAE. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani said the relationship between Qatar and Somalia was one of "brotherhood and mutual respect". The United Arab Emirates has trained and paid the salaries of hundreds of Somali troops since 2014 as part of an effort boosted by an African Union military mission to defeat an Islamist insurgency and secure the country for the Somali government, which is backed by Western nations, Turkey and the United Nations.
