In this web extra, Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid al-Attiyah talks about the war in Yemen, his country's relationship with the United States, and his vision for Qatar's role in the region.

Al-Attiyah denies that cluster bombs are being used by coalition forces in Yemen, and emphasises his country's positive relation with the United States despite leaked 2009 State Department documents questioning the Gulf country's financing of violent groups.

He also describes Qatar's important role as a peacemaker and "mediator" in the region.
