Qatar’s emir said neighboring countries that have imposed a blockade on the Gulf state have no desire to end the crisis in the Gulf, reported Al Jazeera.
Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on Tuesday said that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, and Egypt have shunned dialogue and do not want to resolve the situation.
“We mean what we say when we say we are ready for agreements through dialogue based on mutual respect for sovereignty and shared commitments,” Sheikh Tamim said. “But on the other hand, we know that the indications we receive say siege countries don’t want a solution.”
In June, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt severed ties with Qatar, accusing it of funding terrorism and meddling in their internal affairs.
