Qatar to sue countries imposing blockade

Qatar foreign minister holds talks with Nawaz Sharif

We see too that both Iran and Turkey have their own economic interests in Qatar, which is the reason for their standing with Doha. The government also proposed to terminate mandates of the current Supreme Court judges, and let the justice ministry decide which ones get to stay on and which are replaced. It should be obvious to European countries, not least in view of foreseeable migration flows, which side they should support.

While Qatar has not asked Saudi, Emirati or Bahraini citizens to leave Doha, the three countries demanded Qatari nationals leave as they announced a series of punishing measures.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain have reduced their initial 13 demands to end the isolation of Qatar to six broader principles for combatting extremism. Tillerson warned the crisis is harming US business and military interests in the region. Al Jazeera, a Doha-funded network, has also condemned the demands saying that they are "nothing but an attempt to silence the freedom of expression in the region".

This proves conclusively that it was financing and supporting them publicly and secretly through its charitable associations and its "internationally-wanted" mediators.

He said the human-rights sections in the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab Parliament and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have ignored his plea. Having delivered an ultimatum with 13 supposedly non-negotiable demands, the U.A.E. and its allies let their deadline expire.

Erdogan said the demand was disrespectful of his country. This is what is ultimately at stake in the Gulf confrontation.

The U.S. position on the intra-Arab crisis has been somewhat less than consistent.

He likened it to a "death penalty". "It's as if a death penalty decision has been taken for Qatar", Erdogan told members of his ruling AK Party in Ankara, four weeks ago. Qatar has long prided itself on giving voice to alternative views to the edited, government-approved ones aired by its conservative neighbours. He returned to Doha to brief Qatar's leaders but went back to Washington empty-handed. The Qataris have denied these allegations. As a result of Qatari help, Iran's terrorist militias have caused the disintegration of Arab countries such as Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Only then will the Gulf reach a stable equilibrium in which U.S. interests are truly met. Injecting the United States further into a highly polarized environment in the absence of a necessitating rationale lacks merit and engenders further antipathy.

The visiting minister held meetings with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to discuss issues revolving around the regional situation. The choice of words echoed Trump's earlier criticism of Qatar. The exercises included a parade of military tanks inside the camp. Adoption of cloud computing has been steadily on the rise in the Middle East with research from Markets and Markets suggesting that the cloud applications market is set to almost triple to $2.4bn in 2020 from $888m in 2015.
