Since the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Summit in December 2016, the Metropolitan Police – in conjunction with the Charity Commission -have continued to develop mentoring activity in Doha on countering terrorist finance, as well as arranging for a visit to the UK by a cross-agency Qatari delegation. We are planning for further engagement on the issue of terrorism and terrorist financing through the UK-Qatar Joint Security Committee (JSC) when it meets later this year.
