It added that US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and Qatar's Defence Minister Khalid al-Attiyah had also discussed the current state of operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) and the importance of de-escalating tensions in the Gulf.

Defense analyst Nicholas A. Heras of the Center for a New American Security said the agreement falls under the category of "long-running deals that need to be cleared after review by different elements of the United States government".

Qatar's Ministry of Defence said that the deal would create 60,000 jobs in 42 USA states while reducing the burden on American forces.

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 United States of America is reaping the benefits by selling arms and ammunition to the both the parties concerned.

The State Department past year said it had authorized the sale of 72 F-15 Strike Eagle jets to Qatar.

Meanwhile, the Qatari news agency reported Wednesday that two US Navy vessels arrived in Doha to take part in a joint military exercise with the Qatari Emiri Navy.

The emirate is facing the second week of severe economic and diplomatic sanctions, led by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, over accusations it funds terrorist groups, a charge Qatar denies.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, on a Gulf tour trying to help broker an end to the crisis, defended the fighter jet deal.

Qatar hosts the biggest U.S. military base in the Middle East with more than 11,000 troops deployed or assigned to al-Udeid Air Base.

Turkey and Qatar have both provided support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt - a broad movement whose Islamist goals are anathema to Egypt's ex-military president, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and to numerous Gulf's dynastic rulers.

Qatar on Thursday said that preparations for the 2022 World Cup were unhindered, having secured alternative supplies of construction materials to those that had been coming by land from Saudi Arabia.

The Pentagon said in a statement that the deal "will give Qatar a state-of-the-art capability and increase security cooperation and interoperability between the United States and Qatar".

The sale comes amid a simmering crisis in the Gulf after Qatar's neighbors accused it of supporting terrorism and cut diplomatic ties.
