UAE looks into humanitarian cases of Emirati and Qatari families

11 Juin 2017

The ban comes amid a diplomatic row as Saudi Arabia blacklisted entities and individuals that they perceive as connecting Qatar to extremist groups, with the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Yemen, and Bahrain included.

The diplomatic crisis, the worst since the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iraq and the subsequent Gulf War, has seen Arab nations and others cut ties to Qatar, which hosts a major USA military base and will be the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Reuters reported that Tillerson requested the call with Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu after his pleas on Friday to end a blockade that he says is causing unintended humanitarian consequences and affecting the us led mission against the Islamic State.

Hundreds of mixed-citizenship Qatari couples are facing the grim prospect of being split from their families.

Wazeedi's son added that he feels Qatar is more his home than Bahrain.

"I have only been there four times in my life".

Insisting that isolating Qatar would not resolve any regional problems, Erdoğan vowed that he would do everything in his power to help end the regional crisis.

Separately, Amnesty International criticised the blockade being imposed on Qatar, saying it is "splitting up families and destroying people's' livelihoods and education".

Morata had said: "It's hard to imagine going back to Italy, despite my experience in Serie A being extraordinary". The former Juventus man made only 14 starts in the league, which is nine less than the French worldwide .

The statement, attributed to the Ministry of Interior, said there was no change in policy toward the nationals of "brotherly and friendly countries which cut or reduced diplomatic relations following the malicious and hostile campaigns against Qatar".

The three countries' news agencies did not make clear what services the hotline would provide.

Qatari organisations have also said they are prepared to take legal action against the Gulf states over a list published by Saudi Arabia and its allies on Thursday accusing 59 individuals and 12 groups with links to Qatar, including several high-profile charities, of being "linked to terror". Qatar hosts the Al Udeid air base, home to more than 11,000 U.S. and coalition forces, many involved in the fight against Islamic State.

Qatar has called the accusations baseless and have described the measures as a "siege" harmful to ordinary people there.

Erdogan, referring to Tillerson's remarks on the blockade, said in a speech on Friday that "I say it should be lifted completely".

But in language common to the three countries' announcements, the UAE said it drew a distinction between Qatar's government and its people.
