The historic agreement was made on 11 July 2017:

Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani and Tillerson made the announcement on Tuesday during a joint news conference in the Qatari capital.

“Together the United States and Qatar will do more to track down funding sources, will do more to collaborate and share information, and will do more to keep the region and our homeland safe” said Tillerson.

 

The Foreign Minister called on the blockading countries to sign similar accords:

“Today, Qatar is the first country to sign a memorandum of agreement with the US, and we call on the countries imposing the siege against Qatar to join us as signatories to this MoU,” he said.

Tillerson praised Qatar for signing the deal, and for committing to the effort “to track down and disable terror financing”.

“The US has one goal: to drive terrorism off the face of the Earth,” Tillerson said.
