UAE Wants International Monitoring of Qatar

UAE Wants International Monitoring of Qatar”

The Post cites unnamed U.S. intelligence officials as saying that senior members of the Emirati government discussed the hacking plan on May 23.

It is not clear if the UAE government's intelligence agencies carried out the hack or hired contractors to do so.

Qatar said those reports were fabricated and posted by hackers, though it hasn't identified the source.

Citing the emir's reported comments, the Saudis, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt immediately banned all Qatari media.

"We need to be certain that Qatar, a state with $300 billion in reserves, is no longer an official or unofficial sponsor of jihadist and terrorist causes", said Anwar Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Reuters reported.

The UAE envoy in Washington earlier called The Post story as "false".

The reports plunged the region into a diplomatic maelstrom that continues to ravage relations in the region.

U.S. intelligence agencies declined to comment on the Post's article, but the UAE's ambassador insisted that it "had no role whatsoever in the alleged hacking". What is true is Qatar's behavior. Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Gadhafi. "Inciting violence, encouraging radicalisation, and undermining the stability of its neighbours", Otaiba's statement said.

The FBI, CIA as well as Britain's NCA, all of whom have been working with Qatar to investigate the QNA hack, are yet to comment on the matter.

"What we know now is that Qatar is admitting that the list is worthy, that the list needs to be looked at, and that they need to change some of their laws to ensure that there is a proper process to cover this list", he said.

It said that the six countries, which last month cut ties with Qatar, had collectively written to world soccer's governing body asking it to remove Qatar as hosts under Article 85 of the FIFA Code, which allows for such action in the case of emergency.

Le Drian stressed that the solution to this crisis must stay among the GCC countries, pointing out that France does not want to replace anyone and that it just wants to add its efforts to other countries efforts, that are similarly concerned and want to support the Kuwaiti mediation.
