Saudi-led bloc not want resolving diplomatic crisis: Qatar’s Emir

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani said on Tuesday that Arab states that had imposed sanctions on his country in June were not interested in a solution to the crisis.

Speaking to members of the Gulf Arab state’s Shoura Council, Tamim said his government was preparing for elections to the consultative body. The necessary legislation would be ready in 2018.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar on June 5, accusing Doha of financing terrorism. Qatar denies the charges.

“We express our readiness for a compromise within the framework of a dialogue based on mutual respect for sovereignty and common obligations, but on the other hand we recognize that the indicators that come from the blockade states show they do not want to reach a solution,” Tamim said.

The four countries have “put pressure and published rumors and fabrications” against Qatar hosting the World Cup in 2022.

In his speech, Tamim also said his government was focusing on completing strategic projects to help the country cope with the sanctions imposed by its neighbors, including ports, water and food security, and to encourage investments.
