Qatar – United States relations are bilateral relations between Qatarmarker and the United Statesmarker.

History

Bilateral relations are strong and expanding. The U.S. embassy was opened in March 1973. The first resident U.S. ambassador arrived in July 1974. Ties between the U.S. and Qatar are excellent. Emir Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani last visited Washington in 2004, and President George W. Bush visited Qatar in 2003. Qatar and the United States coordinate closely on regional diplomatic initiatives, cooperate to increase security in the Gulf, and enjoy extensive economic links, especially in the hydrocarbons sector. Qatar sees the development of a world-class educational system as key to its continued success.

As a result, hundreds of Qataris study in the United States. Six U.S. universities have branch campuses in Qatar's Education Citymarker complex, including Virginia Commonwealth Universitymarker School of the Arts in Qatar (VCUQ), Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q), Texas A&M University at Qatarmarker (TAMUQ), Carnegie Mellon University in Qatarmarker (CMU-Q), Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatarmarker (SFS-Qatar), and most recently, Northwestern University[628534] in 2008. SFS-Qatar has, since 2005, offered a four-year program leading to a bachelor's degree in foreign service.
