Riyadh says no to Turkish military base

Riyadh says no to Turkish military base”

According to a New York Times report, President Donald Trump's odd allyship with Saudi Arabia over Qatar is cause for suspicion about whether his allegiances are informed by business interests.

Gargash said the monitoring would aim to ensure Qatar was no longer funding extremism, harbouring extremists in Doha, or providing support to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Al Qaeda.

"In Iraq, Qatar adopted a project similar to that of Iran; to split Iraq into a Sunni region in exchange for a Shiite region", Reuters reported Allawi saying.

The Saudi foreign minister has said a list of specific steps Qatar must take to end the GCC crisis would be announced soon.

Two days before she left her job Ms Smith retweeted a post by Meshal Hamad al-Thani‏, Qatar's ambassador to the USA, which said the deal would create 60,000 new jobs in 42 states.

Saudi Arabia (which has also been accused of supporting terrorist groups), the United Arab Emirates and others have frequently complained about Qatar's state-backed media outlet Al-Jazeera and its equable working relationship with Saudi Arabia's main rival, Shiite power Iran.

The announcement was made in response to remarks made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who said he had offered to build a base in Saudi Arabia "with the same idea" as Turkey's military base in Qatar.

The account was restored by early afternoon Qatar time.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is to visit Saudi Arabia next week as part of a tour of neighbouring countries. "They said they would look into it but since that day nothing more came", he said.

Some wonder whether all this pressure on Qatar might backfire, driving the country into an alliance with Russia, Turkey and Iran - one with very different objectives from the U.S.

"Both Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have very clearly come out in very nuanced ways saying this dispute goes against USA interests in the Persian Gulf and we would really appreciated if the actors involved could sit down and resolve this in a peaceful manner". In fact, the Saudi led action against Qatar emanates from insecurity prevailing in some Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain about Doha's successes in transforming Qatar as an economic and technological hub of the Middle East.

The Pentagon, meanwhile, maintains the U.S. Central Command's regional forward operating base in Qatar and has just signed a deal reportedly worth $12 billion to sell F-15 fighter jets to Doha.

"The ordeal lasted almost 10 hours during which we faced multiple interrogations and lock-up", he said, expressing gratitude to the Turkish authorities for solving the issue.

Although Persian Gulf countries have staged blockades of Qatar before and scored concessions, some analysts said the situation had not been quite like this.
