Qatar publishes demands made by Arab countries

Qatar publishes demands made by Arab countries”

Complying would bring Qatar's policies in line with the regional vision of Saudi Arabia, the Middle East's biggest economy and gatekeeper of Qatar's only land border.

AP has obtained a copy of the Arab demands "from one of the countries involved in the dispute", revealing that Qatar, among other things, is being pressured to cut ties with Iran, stop its support for Muslim Brotherhood and other radical groups, shut down its Al Jazeera broadcaster, close a military base housing Turkish troops on its territory and pay a fine.

The list also calls on Qatar to close the Turkish military base that is now under construction in Qatar as well as sever ties to all terrorist, sectarian and ideological organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fath al-Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front) and Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah movement.

The demands were presented by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, which had earlier imposed a diplomatic and trade embargo on Qatar, through the Emir of Kuwait, who is mediating the crisis.

"A lowering of rhetoric would also help ease the tension", Mr Tillerson said. Anwar Gargash, the UAE's state minister for foreign affairs, said Qatar should yield to the demands. Erdogan said Turkey would continue to support Qatar against the many sanctions it has faced.

He said it only confirmed that "the illegal blockade has nothing to do with combating terrorism, it is about limiting Qatar's sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy".

Qatar's National Human Rights Committee said some of the demands violate global human rights conventions, according to a Qatar News Agency story tweeted Friday by the foreign ministry. "Qatar has implemented only one - the closure of Al-Jazeera Live Egypt. Al-Jazeera is a platform for promoting the agendas of extremist groups in the region", he added.

"What we are talking about here is an attack on the sovereign rights of a state", he said. "[.] This approach of 13 demands is against worldwide law because you can not attack or intervene in the sovereignty of a country".

Meshal Hamad Al-Thani, Qatar's ambassador to the United States, tweeted that the list was meant to "punish Qatar for its independence". "No offence but Turkey is not an ordinary country, it is not an ordinary state", he said.

Al Jazeera said any call to close down the network is an attempt to silence freedom of expression in the region. The GCC, or Gulf Cooperation Council, includes Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait as well as Qatar. Asked whether Qatar felt pressure to resolve the crisis quickly, he said: "Not at all". Qatar is home to the largest U.S. base in the region, Al-Udeid, and Bahrain is home to the Fifth Fleet of the United States Navy.
