The discussions with Qatar over the possible purchase of 24 Typhoon and six Hawk aircraft are ongoing following the signature of a Statement of Intent by the Qatari Defence Minister and the UK Defence Secretary on 17 September 2017. Given the commercial nature of these discussions it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.
