Qatar’s Response Angered Arab Gulf Leaders

The Leaders of the four Arab nations that had sought to isolate Qatar over its alleged support for extremist groups started talks yesterday, hours after receiving Qatar’s response to their demands for ending the crisis.

They made this known after a meeting by foreign ministers from the four nations — Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in Cairo.

The four had accused Qatar of supporting terror groups and also of maintaining close relations with Shiite power Iran following same comment by US President.

Egypt’s foreign minister, Sameh Shukri, told reporters Qatar’s response to the Arab states’ 13-point list of demands was “negative on the whole.” It did not “lay the foundations for Qatar’s abandonment of the policies it pursues. It’s a position that does not realize the gravity of the situation,” he added.

The Emirati Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said Qatar was only interested in “destruction, incitement, extremism and terrorism,” rather than in good neighborly relations.
