Harm caused by Doha to Arab states "not ignored": UAE min.

Fri, Jul. 7, 2017
CAIRO – 6 June 2017: Emirati Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Qarqash said Thursday that the harm caused to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the rest of the Arab countries by Doha can’t be “ignored”.

“Plots have been planned and blood has been scattered due to Qatar’s behaviors and polices. Doha’s denial is extremely weird,” Qarqash wrote on his Twitter account Thursday.

He added that Qatar has a “black record” of plotting and that the only way out of this dispute is through changing the whole government’s orientation.

Qatar’s relations with several Arab and Gulf States have been strained since May 24, when the Qatari state-run news agency reported Sheikh Tamim bin Hammad Al-Thani’s statements regarding Gulf foreign policy with Iran as “unwise.”

On June 5, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Libya and Yemen decided to cut all diplomatic ties with Qatar, hurling allegations that the state supports terrorism. Ports and airspace were cut off to Qatari vessels.

On June 6, Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Ahmad Al-Sabah started a tour that included Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar in an attempt to mediate between the three countries.

A list of 13-demands was given to Doha’s government by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain for reconciliation; however, Qatar’s response was described as “negative” by the four countries’ foreign ministers in a joint statement released after holding a summit in Cairo Wednesday.
