From Denny: Not exactly a complete readout but rather a summary of topics discussed. It would be more interesting if they provided a transcript but that's definitely too much to hope for, right? :)
The White House
Office of the Vice President
February 24, 2015
The Vice President held a breakfast meeting with Amir Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani of Qatar to discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues. The Vice President and Amir spoke about the significant cooperation between the United States and Qatar against ISIL, including Doha’s role in hosting coalition forces at Al Udeid Air Force Base. They discussed how best to work to bring about a political transition in Syria in a way that also marginalizes extremists. They spoke about ongoing P5+1 negotiations with Iran and agreed on the need to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. Amid unprecedented and ongoing upheaval in the Middle East and North Africa, the Vice President and Amir both underscored the importance of continued dialogue and cooperation between the United States and Qatar.
