Qatar Rejects Saudi-Led Demands terming them Unreasonable

Qatar Rejects Saudi-Led Demands terming them Unreasonable

Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani

Qatar has rejected a list of demands submitted by four Arab countries led by the Saudi regime as neither reasonable nor actionable.

Alwaght- Qatar has rejected a list of demands submitted by four Arab countries led by the Saudi regime as neither reasonable nor actionable.

The list was received by Qatar's ministry of foreign affairs on June 22, according to a report by the state-run Qatar News Agency.

"This list of demands confirms what Qatar has said from the beginning - the illegal blockade has nothing to do with combating terrorism, it is about limiting Qatar's sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy," Sheikh Saif bin Ahmed Al Thani, director of the Qatari government's communications office, said in a statement on Friday.

"The state of Qatar is currently studying this paper, the demands contained therein and the foundations on which they were based, in order to prepare an appropriate response to it and hand it over to the state of Kuwait," QNA said, citing a statement by the ministry of foreign affairs.

Kuwait has been acting as a mediator to defuse the crisis that erupted on June 5 when Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Egypt and some other countries announced they were severing relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting "terrorism".

On Friday media outlets published a list of 13 demands that the Saudi-led regimes had given Qatar a 10 days to comply with. Some of the demands included shutting down the Al Jazeera Media Network, closing a Turkish military base and scaling down ties with Iran. In the document, the countries also demanded that Qatar sever all alleged ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and with other groups, including Hezbollah.

Meanwhile Turkey has rejected a key demand by the Saudi-led regimes that it shuts down its military base in Qatar.

Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said on Friday that the Turkish base aims to train Qatari soldiers and increase the tiny Persian Gulf nation's security. According to the Milliyet newspaper's online edition, he also said that "no one should be disturbed by" the Turkish presence in Qatar.

Turkey has sided with Qatar in the dispute and its parliament has ratified legislation allowing the deployment of Turkish troops to the base.
