Qatar rejects intervention in foreign policy: FM

The acting director-general of Al Jazeera Media Network Mostefa Souag attends an interview with Reuters in Doha Qatar

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told reporters that Qatar had never experienced this type of hostility, even from an enemy country.

He also said that there the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani was supposed to address the Qatari people regarding the recent developments but it was postponed after a phone call from the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in order to allow the Emir of Kuwait "the space to move and make contacts with the conflict parties and try to contain the issue as he always did".

The Foreign Minister stressed that the Turkish forces coming to Qatar are for the benefit of the security of the whole region, adding that Qatar does not expect any change in the mandate of the USA base in the country.

He said "we are going through extremely hard circumstances and challenges and there are wars in the Arab world and people killed whether due to terrorism and extremism or terror crimes committed by regimes against their peoples, and there is a crisis in Yemen, Syria and Libya, and these challenges must unite us".

Far from backing down in the face of unprecedented pressure from Gulf rivals, Qatar's foreign minister said Thursday that no other country could determine its policies.

On June 5, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain announced they were cutting diplomatic ties and closing air, sea and land links with Qatar, giving Qataris within their borders two weeks to leave.

The Qatari foreign minister said he still did not understand what the accusations against Doha were all about.

President Trump stumps Twitter with 'covfefe'
Another intriguing aspect is the fact the message is still active on Trump's Twitter account and it was seen by 31 million users. But on Tuesday night (May 30), the tweeter-in-chief set the service on fire with one of his most confounding, weird messages.

"We have been isolated because we are successful and progressive..."

Qatar has vowed it will not surrender its foreign policy in a row with other Arab states over its alleged connections to extremism.

Foreign minister said that UAE is exploiting trading position as a political tool.

He said Qatar had not yet been presented with a list of demands by the countries that cut off ties with the country on Monday, but he insisted it be solved by peaceful means. "We are a platform for peace, a platform for alternative policy in this region", he added.

Ghobas said: "The idea that there is an Islamic solution to Middle East's social and economic problems is not something we are persuaded of".

"40 percent of UAE power depends on the natural gas of Qatar and we will respect the LNG agreements we have signed with the UAE".
