Qatar open to talks with Gulf rivals
    2017-July-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

QATAR said it was willing to hold talks with the Arab nations that have hit it with an embargo but also warned that it would not be dictated to by its neighbors, ahead of a deadline to comply with their demands that passed at midnight Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic ties and transport links with Qatar a month ago, and issued 13 demands. These include Qatar, which the Arab states accuse of sponsoring terrorism, paying reparations and closing Al Jazeera, the satellite television channel.

Early yesterday the quartet of Arab nations confirmed they had received Qatar’s response and said they would reciprocate “in a timely manner.”

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Qatar’s foreign minister, said Tuesday that Doha was “prepared to engage in dialogue to examine the grievances raised by other states.” But he added that any discussions “must be based on clear principles without the threat of escalation.”

“This must be within the context of respect for our sovereignty and non-intervention in our domestic affairs — we can’t be dictated to,” he said.

Qatar admits it supports Islamist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. But it denies supporting terrorism.(SD-Agencies)
