Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Qatari Defense Minister Hamad bin Ali al-Attiyah inked the agreement for Apache helicopters and Patriot and Javelin systems at the Pentagon,  DoD said Monday.

“Today’s signing ceremony underscores the strong partnership between the United States and Qatar in the area of security and defense and will help improve our bilateral cooperation across a range of military operations, ” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said.
