Jordan downgrades diplomatic relations with Qatar

Parmenio Sano | 08 Giugno, 2017, 13:04

He said: "The recent enormous armament deals of the American President Trump with the Gulf monarchies exacerbate the risk of a new rearmament spiral".

Earlier, he said the Saudis' move to isolate Qatar could mark the "beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism".

Several countries cut travel and embassy links with Qatar on Monday.

Qatar strongly denies the allegations.

In explaining Trump's tweet, Spicer said, "there is note that his message of toughness on terror finance and extremism is being heeded by countries in the region". It is surely no coincidence that this latest action was taken just two weeks after US President Donald Trump's speech in Riyadh where he explicitly offered US support to Saudi Arabia against Iran. Trump wrote in a series of tweets. Qatar is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council, a defense alliance between the Gulf states: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and UAE.

Just a reminder: the country he has accused of terrorism hosts the al-Udeid base, the starting point for United States military air operations across the region.

Qatar also imports its food, with a significant percentage coming through Saudi Arabia.

"Nobody wants to hurt Qatar".

The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin has spoken by phone with the ruler of Qatar, urging dialogue amid a split between the Gulf state and other Arab countries.


Still, the official says the U.S.is working to address the conflict and ensure the USA and its Arab partners remain united in their efforts to right extremism and terrorism.

She added that Qatar government has continued to maintain its relation with Indonesia, which is dubbed as one of the potential tourist destinations.

The skyline of Doha, Qatar, is seen at night in 2013. Some countries designate both as terrorist groups.

"Whatever has been thrown as an accusation is all based on misinformation and we think that the entire crisis being based on misinformation", Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told CNN.

Disruption to airspace in the Gulf began on Tuesday morning local time. Doha is a major worldwide hub and all flights going through the Qatari capital had to be rerouted. According to the CAPA Center for Aviation, the carrier had 55 daily flights to Saudi Arabia and the UAE before the diplomatic row.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE used to be the biggest markets by the number of available seats for Qatar Airways. This led to panic in Qatar as citizens rushed to stockpile move.

He said Qatar-supported Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, "undermines the Palestinian Authority".

"In this respect, we appreciate Qatar's constructive stance", he said.

Ms. Nauert praised Qatar for its role in fight against terrorism.
