Qatar given 48-hour extension
    2017-July-4  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SAUDI ARABIA and three other Arab states have extended the deadline for Qatar to accept a list of demands or face further sanctions by 48 hours.

The initial deadline for Qatar to agree to the group’s 13 demands, including the shutting down of the Al Jazeera news network, expired Sunday.

Qatar yesterday responded to the list of demands from Saudi Arabia and its allies.

Details of the response were not immediately available, but a Gulf official said that Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani had delivered it during a short visit to Kuwait, which is acting as a mediator in the crisis.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, who started a tour of several Gulf states yesterday, called for “serious dialogue” to end the crisis.

“We are worried that the distrust and the disunity could weaken all the parties concerned as well as the entire peninsula,” said Gabriel, who will visit Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar.

Qatar has been under unprecedented diplomatic and economic sanctions for weeks from Saudi Arabia and its allies, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain.

On June 23, the four countries, whose foreign ministers will meet tomorrow to discuss the situation, set a deadline of 10 days for Qatar to agree to their requirements, which include the closure of a Turkish military base and the curbing of diplomatic relations with Iran.

The imposed restrictions have caused turmoil in Qatar.
