DIPLOMATIC ROW: Saudi reiterates that 13-point demand on Qatar non-negotiable

Gulf of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia has once again reiterated its stand on the 13-point demand on Qatar ‘to stop funding terrorism’ saying it is non-negotiable.

In a post on Twitter, Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi foreign minister noted that the “demands on Qatar to stop funding terrorism are non-negotiable”.

“Restrictions on Qatar show zero tolerance for terrorism,” Jubeir said, claiming that Doha had failed to keep previous pledges of stopping “funding terrorism and interfering in other countries’ affairs”. Qatar denies all allegations.
