India asks Qatar to resolve issue through dialogue

11 Juin 2017

Doha's foreign minister on June 9 called the sanctions imposed by other Arab states an "unjust siege" which violates global law, and called for dialogue between the two sides to resolve the dispute.

"The emir of Qatar has made progress in halting financial support and expelling terrorist elements from his country, but he must do more and he must do it more quickly", Tillerson said.

Sheikh Khaled said he had explained to Mr Erdogan how Qatar's actions had led to the rift and said Doha should guarantee that it will not continue.

But the Pentagon has been developing contingency plans in case there is any interruption, defence officials said.

Riyadh, Cairo and their allies have accused Qatar, the world's richest country per capita, of supporting militant Islamist movements across the region.

On Thursday, Qatar said that is willing and prepared to be isolated "forever" as long as foreign powers don't interfere with its sovereignty or foreign policy.

The crisis is drawing in more countries.

Qatar does not support terrorist groups, it stressed, pointing out that "our position on countering terrorism is stronger than numerous signatories of the joint statement-a fact that has been conveniently ignored by the authors".

Corbyn's unexpected successes, however, may show that the current of dissatisfaction with the political status quo remains potent. Londoners have since held demonstrations against Trump and what many perceived as a slight against Khan's Muslim faith.

"We can not be happy in a situation when the relations between our partners are worsening".

"We will not abandon our Qatari brothers", Erdogan said at the Turkish parliament on Friday, state Anadolu news agency reported. Davis said the diplomatic rift has not interrupted or curtailed operations at al-Udeid air base, a launching pad for USA military efforts in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. The list included members of the ruling family. The crisis has thrust the USA into a delicate position because of its alliances with all sides-and because Qatar hosts the nerve centre for U.S. air operations in the Middle East, including the fight against Islamic State.

On Friday, the USA president and secretary of state took contrasting approaches to Washington's mediation efforts. The Arab states have also ordered Qataris out within 14 days.

Tillerson said the blockade was hindering the US-led campaign against the Islamic State group and having humanitarian consequences for ordinary people.

The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the blockade imposed by some Gulf countries is unacceptable, calling for de-escalation in the current Gulf crisis.

The Qatari government said the move "reinforces baseless allegations that hold no foundation in fact".

However inside the White House, the Times reports, Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis are arguing that the United States can't afford Saudi Arabia and its allies rupturing with Qatar, meaning Trump's confused aggression is coming in direct opposition to his national security advisers.

The UAE ambassador to Washington, Yousef Al Otaiba, welcomed Mr Trump's comments, saying "the president is absolutely right, stopping funding for extremism means starting with Qatar".
