CAIRO - 2 September 2017: A major conference will be held in London on September 14 and will be attended by a large number of Arab and international political figures, academics and media professionals, and Qataris to discuss the Qatari crisis, according to Al-Arabiya news channel.

Steeve Page, vice president of the European Center for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR), announced on Saturday in a statement the center’s support to the conference, which is considered the first Arab and international conference on the Qatari crisis.

Page added in his statement that the center, as well as a number of various human rights organizations and personalities in Europe will participate in the conference and are awaiting to discuss the crisis.

On his part, Nawaf Dahir, president of ECDHR, stressed on the importance of “the EU and the European Parliament coordinating with their Gulf partners to advise Qatar to conduct a comprehensive review of its policy that has created tension in the region and promoted terrorism and extremism.”

Dahir noted that the conference would be a valuable opportunity for the Europeans to learn about the views of the Qatari reformists such as Khalid al-Hail, the official spokesman of the Qatari opposition.

According to Al-Arabiya, this conference is organized by the Qatari opposition leader and businessman, Khalid al-Hail, alongside a number of exiled Qataris.

It has been three months since the Qatari crisis in the Middle East broke out, where Qatar was faced with the four Arab countries, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, cutting all diplomatic ties with Doha, amid allegations that Qatar is funding and supporting terrorism.
