Saudi, allies issue Qatar-linked 'terrorism' list

Saudi, allies issue Qatar-linked 'terrorism' list Saudi, allies issue Qatar-linked 'terrorism' list

The announcement intensifies the diplomatic and economic campaign to isolate Qatar, a small Gulf Arab state which is a critical global supplier of gas and hosts the biggest USA military base in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia and the UAE listed scores of organizations in a 2014 spat with Qatar.

Turkey and Qatar are close allies in foreign policy issues in various parts of the region, such as Palestine, Syria and Egypt.

"We believe these are unintended consequences, especially during the holy month of Ramadan", he said.

"So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off".

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates this week broke off relations with Qatar, -- a country of almost 2.3 million people, mostly foreign workers, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Qatar vowed on Thursday to ride out the isolation and said it would not compromise its sovereignty over foreign policy to resolve the region's biggest diplomatic crisis in years.

Qatar is rich in oil and gas but it doesn't really produce its own food - nearly all of it comes from Saudi Arabia.


Referring to the regional group that includes Qatar, the President also "reiterated that a united Gulf Cooperation Council and a strong United States-Gulf Cooperation Council partnership are critical to defeating terrorism and promoting regional stability".

Gargash, the UAE minister, told Reuters in an interview it would be very complex to disentangle the "very diverse" business ties between Qatar and its neighbours but suggested this might be necessary. Earlier in the week, Trump took to Twitter to take credit for the Saudi-led move to punish Qatar, saying it could be the start of the end of terrorism in the Middle East.

USA military officials, also speaking anonymously to discuss political issues, said the Al Udeid airbase in Qatar is vital to American air support against Iranian paramilitaries and Iranian-backed forces on the side of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war.

But a Qatari official said on Thursday the emir would not be accepting the invitation.

Although applauding a Kuwaiti effort to mediate the crisis, Gargash said Emirati and Saudi officials planned to concede nothing to Qatar, an global air travel hub now cut off from some of the skies around it and blocked from receiving the trucks full of food it relies on to feed its citizens. He said there were enough grain supplies for four weeks and that Qatar also had large strategic food reserves.

"Qatar can no longer have it both ways", said Yousef al-Otaiba, UAE's ambassador to the United States, in a statement following the president's remarks. The UAE also banned all flights from the Qatari capital Doha from entering its airspace. "A political, economic and social aggression", a Qatari diplomat said.

Riyadh, Cairo and their allies accuse Qatar, the world's richest country per capita, of supporting militant Islamist movements across the region. Moscow said the report was false.
