Qatar receives list of demands from neighbours to end diplomatic crisis

23 Juin 2017

The list was handed over to Doha by Kuwait, which is mediating in the dispute.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt had released a joint statement naming 59 Qatar-based or -funded individuals and 12 organizations labeled "terrorist" on June 15. The Arab countries signalled that if Qatar refuses to comply by the 10-day deadline, they will continue to restrict its access to land, sea and air routes indefinitely amid mounting economic pressure on the Persian Gulf nation.

There's finally some movement in the standoff between Arab countries and Qatar - but probably not in the direction USA officials were hoping.

"Doha rejects discussing any matter related to Al Jazeera channel as it considers it an internal affair", Qatar News Agency quoted the foreign minister as saying.

Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states on Friday demanded the closure of broadcaster al-Jazeera, among other conditions, in return for the lifting of its trade and diplomatic sanctions. He suggested instead that Turkey might bolster its presence.

"The strengthening of the Turkish base would be a positive step in terms of the Gulf's security", Isik said.

Extradite all those included on the terrorist created by all four Arab states.

Qatar denies funding terrorism and encouraging regional instability.

"Qatar leaking demands and concerns of its neighbors & Egypt either attempt to undermine serious mediation or yet another sign of callous policy", wrote Gargash in a string of tweets on his official account. There was no immediate response from Qatar but Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said earlier that it would not negotiate until the punitive measures were lifted.

"If there is such a demand, it will mean interference in bilateral ties", he said speaking to local broadcaster NTV. "Imagine another country demanding that CNN be closed", said 40-year-old Haseeb Mansour, who works for telecom operator Ooredoo.

— Align itself with the other Gulf and Arab countries militarily, politically, socially and economically, as well as on economic matters, in line with an agreement reached with Saudi Arabia in 2014.

These troops must leave and cooperation with them must cease within Qatar's borders.

Qatar must pay reparations to these countries for any damage or costs incurred over the past few years because of Qatari policies, he added.

If Qatar agrees to comply with the demands, the list will be audited once a month for the first year and then once per quarter in the second year. Qatar's neighbours accuse Al-Jazeera of fomenting unrest in the region and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

Turkey and Qatar have a long history of being on the same side of regional conflicts and developments. Bahrain, Saudi, UAE and Qatar are all members.
