UAE Foreign Affairs Minister Anwar Gargash - Reuters
CAIRO – 12 July 2017: Qatar's policy has been disastrous for the region since 1995 with supporting extremism and terror at the core of its policy, Foreign Affairs Minister Anwar Gargash of United Arab Emirates said Tuesday.
He told Sky News there is a “golden opportunity” to change that policy, adding that Qatar is in crisis because of its role in destabilizing the region, culminating in a number of countries losing confidence in Doha.
The UAE minister said “temporary solutions did not pay off, and diplomacy should address Qatar's support for extremism and terrorism.
He concluded that the facts regarding Qatar’s support for terrorism for decades are compelling and that any mediation or diplomatic effort would not succeed without “rationality, maturity and realism” on the part of Doha.
