Gargash: Qatar did not deal wisely with Arab Quartet boycott

Fri, May. 25, 2018
CAIRO – 25 May 2018: United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Gargash tweeted on Friday saying that Qatar did not deal wisely with its boycott measures, which are coming up on their first anniversary in a few days.
“Not acknowledging its damage to its neighbors, the claim of injustice, purchasing support and waiting for the sincere, is a strategy that proved a failure,” he tweeted.




I hope that a year from the boycott will produce a new thought and a wise approach in Doha. The change will not be through public relations companies, regional squabbles and external intervention, but through a review of policies that have caused damage and contributed to extremism and terrorism, Gargash tweeted.




It would not be helpful for Doha to blame the United Arab Emirates, target Saudi Arabia, or undermine the security of Bahrain and Egypt. Internal auditing is a necessity, and the problem is that Doha seeks to target the security of its neighbors and support extremism and terrorism in the region, Gargash mentioned.




“In terms of Doha's handling of its crisis, we can conclude that isolation is continuing under a strategy that failed to dismantle the crisis and even proved the continuation of the damage. A new geo-strategic reality that we deal with minimal damage and will only be changed by revision and regression,” he tweeted.




Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain announced they are severing relations with Qatar over "its continuous support for terrorism," closing their airspace and seaports for Qatari transportation in June 2017.
“Protecting national security from the dangers of terrorism and extremism, Saudi Arabia has decided to cut diplomatic ties and consular relations with the State of Qatar,” announced the Saudi Foreign Ministry in a statement.
