Commenting on the report, Kyle Orton, author and research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society, summarised:
“The report raises some troubling questions about Qatar’s regional policies. Despite finding that in a number of areas Qatar has made significant improvements over time, it shows that the effects of prior policies—notably in Syria and Libya—will be lasting and deleterious. There is still progress to be made in terms of cracking down on terror finance from Qatar and the use of its state-run media as a platform for incitement and the dissemination of extremism.”
