FILE - Emirati Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Qarqash
CAIRO – 22 March 2018: The United Arab Emirates' Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, said Thursday that the terror list Qatar has issued proves Qatari support for terrorism.
“Qatar confirms the evidence against it, and asserts that its support for terrorism and extremism is the essence of the Qatari crisis.”
Qatar placed 19 individuals and eight entities, including the Islamic State's (IS) "Sinai Province" and Al-Ihsan Charitable Society in Yemen, on its terror list on Thursday.
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have turned on Qatar since June 5, with a complete air and trade boycott over allegations of its support of terrorism, which Doha repeatedly denies.
The Arab Quartet issued 13 demands to Doha – later shortened to six principles – which included turning down the provocative voice of its news channel, Al-Jazeera, curbing relations with Iran, and halting its intervention in the domestic issues of the Arab nations.
