At the launch, Sheikh Hamad al-Thani, CEO of Al Dana Company, said: "Qatar Taxi has partnered with one of the world's leading companies in this field, which will be based in Doha, to ensure the security, privacy and secrecy of our users and their data".

The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, cut off travel and trade ties with Qatar last June, accusing it of supporting terrorism and their arch-rival Iran. "It's getting stopped and fast". In a phone call last week, Trump credited the emir with working to counter terror financing and extremism.

The emir said, "We do not and we will not tolerate with people who fund terrorism".

Trump suggested that Washington is working to end the feud between Qatar and its Arab neighbours. "We are cooperating with the United States of America to stop funding of terrorism around the region".

Still, as Trump praised the emir as a "great gentleman" and a "friend of mine", it was unclear how much of the warm reception was due to Trump's time-honored habit of chiding his opponents from afar but then softening when they come face to face.

Qatar has since taken steps to address USA concerns, even allowing Treasury Department officials into its central bank to improve accountability for controls to prevent terror funding.

President Donald Trump's "America First" policy means the dollar will have to weaken, according to Deutsche Bank AG . Schenck announced plans to leave Deutsche Bank after Easter during the appointment process, according to the firm.

"I want to make something very clear, Mr. President", he said.

In a related development, Saudi Arabia could consider a proposal to dig a maritime canal along the kingdom's border with Qatar, turning the peninsula-nation into an island and transforming its only land border into a military zone and nuclear waste site, state-linked Saudi newspapers reported Monday.

Sheikh Tamim said his nation hosts more than 10,000 USA servicemen and women and work with Washington in countering terrorism.

And a readout of the meeting issued later by the White House said "the leaders discussed joint efforts to finalize new commercial deals that would create more than 50,000 American jobs" in addition to discussing Syria and "Iranian and Russian malign influence" there.
