Qatar says blockade by Arab states is collective punishment

Officials at Hamad port say that the ongoing spat between Gulf countries and Qatar may even help the latter seal new transport deals that do not rely on Gulf neighbours

Otaiba on Tuesday told reporters this list would include things like expelling extremists; shutting down or reining in Qatari media operations that have been hostile to Gulf states; and implementing reforms to how the state tracks and counters terrorist financing.

While Pakistan declined to outright back Saudi Arabia in the conflict, Trump's emerging foreign policy reportedly may have urged Islamabad to agree to use its influence on Qatar and to resolve the crisis among the Arab Gulf states.

"Turkey has opened its market to us".

The five men appear in US Treasury sanctions lists and were tried in 2015 and 2016, according to two Western officials and a Qatari official, who have direct knowledge of the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren't authorized to disclose the information publicly.

The signing comes as Mattis has offered his support to Qatar in the past. This facility coordinates US military air operations across the region - from Syria to Iraq to Afghanistan. These decisions were taken in full conformity with the fundamental principles of Public International Law. The South Asian nation is already embroiled in disputes with neighboring Afghanistan and India, both of which accuse it of offering support to hardline Sunni Muslim militant groups such as the Taliban and Lashkar-e-Taiba. He called the trip a "routine port visit".

"Many navies from our European allies are asking for exercises". Qatar's ambassador to the USA made sure to tweet out a photo of the signing ceremony Thursday, saying Qatar's purchase would create 60,000 new jobs in the U.S.

Al-Marri said the Qatari National Human Rights Committee was seeking United Nations action through creation of a "fact-finding commission" and deployment of United Nations rights investigators to assess the impact in Qatar.

Two weeks ago, several Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Libya severed their diplomatic relations with Qatar, which could be an opportunity for Iran to capture Qatar's market.

The company's deputy managing director for sales and marketing Ehsan Dashtianeh said, "Qatar needs a considerable amount of steel products for its development plans which were earlier supplied from companies in the UAE and Saudi Arabia".

"The mixed messages the administration is sending on many national security issues is baffling", Sen. "It has been a bit of a pain at times in other things. but the American angle has often been very important". If pressuring Qatar to cut off Hamas would deprive the group of oxygen entirely it would be one thing, but there are other sources of support that may fill the void, and in many ways it is better for Hamas to rely on Qatar than it is for Hamas to rely on Iran and Turkey.

Turkey has become one of few countries who have rushed help to Qatar.

"I will never buy Saudi Arabian and UAE products again", said a Qatari man recently to my colleague Sudarsan Raghavan. But its cutoff air travel routes remain problematic.

Yes, declining oil prices are worrying, and in this new economic milieu when there is a risk that the Saudi Riyal may have to be devalued, Qatar cosying up to the oil titan Iran is annoying, but there is no real evidence that Qatar actually hurt Saudi interests. But it isn't just Saudi Arabia that has made the accusation.

Qatar has filed complaints to the Montreal-based International Civil Aviation Organization, a U.N. agency, calling the Arab nations' refusal to let it fly through their airspace illegal.

A senior United Arab Emirates minister has updated Malaysia on the situation with Qatar.

"We don't want to take any of Djibouti's land", Araya said.
