French president tries to ease Gulf dispute

12 Juin 2017

On June 5, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, as well as Yemen, the interim government of Libya, the Maldives and Mauritius announced cutting diplomatic relations with Qatar over Doha's hostile policies, interference in other Arab countries' internal affairs and support of terrorism.

"Our annual results once again reflect the success of our expansion and growth strategy that has seen the Qatar Airways Group grow from a small regional airline into an aviation powerhouse over the last two decades".

"I think this is not about counter-terrorism, it's not about terror financing", he told AFP.

The Somali official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said six Somali Cabinet ministers who recently visited Saudi Arabia were pressured to end ties with Qatar or miss out on development aid.

"For potentially thousands of people across the Gulf, the effect of the steps imposed in the wake of this political dispute is suffering, heartbreak and fear", James Lynch, Deputy Director of Amnesty International's Global Issues Programme, said in a statement. Iran also has shipped in vegetables by air and plans to send some 350 tons of fruit by sea to Qatar, with which it shares a massive offshore natural gas field.

Qatar's Foreign Ministry is complaining that the various accusations being made by the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates lack all transparency, and that oftentimes it isn't even actually clear what they're being accused of.

She noted that she is African-American among the overwhelmingly white crowd. "Our wedding was just so joyful", she smiled. Food stands handed out kefir bowls and bee-pollen smoothies.

The sources said that it is being considered that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif may dash to some Arab capital/s today or in the days to come in the light of the deliberations on highly significant diplomatic mission. "We will continue deliveries as long as there is demand".

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

Kuwait is attempting to play the role of a mediator and hopes to diplomatically resolve the crisis.

It was importing 80 percent of its food from bigger Gulf Arab neighbours before they cut ties and is now in talks with Iran and Turkey to secure food and water supplies.

Washington has sent mixed signals on the crisis, despite Qatar's position as a key ally and host to the region's largest U.S. airbase.

Somalia will not sever ties with Qatar as the Gulf state becomes increasingly isolated from its nieghbors, a senior Somali diplomat has said.
