Qatar Expresses Regret over Content of Siege Countries’ Statements

The State of Qatar expressed regret over the content of the two statements issued in Cairo and Jeddah by the four siege countries and the false accusations included in them that amount to defamation in contradiction with the established foundations of international relations.

A senior Foreign Ministry source described the statements’ claims about the State of Qatar’s interference in internal affairs of countries and financing terrorism as baseless allegations, noting that the State of Qatar’s position on terrorism is consistent and known for its rejection and condemnation of all forms of terrorism whatever the causes and motives are, adding that the State of Qatar is an active member committed to international conventions in combating terrorism and its financing at the regional and international levels, and the international community attests to that.

The source added that accusing Qatar of leaking the list of demands of the four countries is baseless and can be refuted with evidence.

In line with what the State of Qatar had affirmed in the official message that included the response to the demands and was handed by HE Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani to HH Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as the mediator in the crisis and whom the State of Qatar’s Emir, government and people highly appreciate for his sincere efforts to reach a solution to the crisis, the source reiterated the State of Qatar’s readiness to cooperate and review all claims that do not contradict with the sovereignty of the State of Qatar under the sponsorship of the impartial mediator or whoever the mediator sees appropriate to participate in solving the crisis as part of joint dialogue.
