France Urges Saudi-Led Regimes to Lift Embargo on Qatar

France Urges Saudi-Led Regimes to Lift Embargo on Qatar

Alwaght- France has called on Saudi-led regimes to lift embargo on Qatar, saying the three-month ban harms the Arab state's civilians.

The French president's office issued a statement on Friday, saying, "The President of the Republic called for the lifting of the embargo, which harms the Qatari citizens, especially families and students, as soon as possible".

Macron "expressed his concern over the tensions that threaten regional stability, undermining the political resolution of crises and our collective fight against terrorism," the statement red.

Macron's remark came after he met with Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, earlier in the day.

In early June, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting extremism and interfering in their internal affairs. The four Arab states also embargoed all sea, air and land routes to the small Persian Gulf emirate, which affected mixed marriage families and students, residing in other Arab states and cut off vital routes for imports including food.

On June 22, the group issued a 13-point list of demands, including the shutdown of Al Jazeera, limiting ties with Iran, and expelling Turkish troops stationed in the country as a prerequisite to lifting the blockade.

Doha rejected all the demands, denouncing them as an attempt to infringe on Qatar's sovereignty.
