DIPLOMATIC ROW: Gulf of Arab nations set to table more grouse against Qatar

The ongoing diplomatic row between Qatar and other Gulf of Arab countries is set to spill over with reports suggesting that the Gulf nations are drawing up a list of issues with Doha which they will present to it soon.

That much information was made known by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir while addressing newsmen in the British capital of London, on Friday.

Adel al-Jubeir said a list of “grievances” involving Qatar was being drawn up and would be presented shortly and also called on Doha to respond to what he claimed were international and regional calls for it to halt its support for “extremism and terrorism”.

“I would not call them demands. I would say it is a list of grievances that need to be addressed and that the Qataris need to fix,” he said.

Recall that on June 5 four Arab states – Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt – cut diplomatic and trade relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting “extremism” and their regional rival Iran, claims which Doha has vehemently denied.
