UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar al-Gargash explained in a tweet that the Qatari crisis is “within a region of its own.”
He said that Doha should address the Arab quartet’s concerns and not just acknowledge concerns from Washington and other Western countries.
He told that Qatar would come out of crisis once it realizes the consequences of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.
He stressed again in a following tweet that the conflict should remain only within this region and the solution lies in addressing the facts. “Avoiding them due to ‘foreign pressures’ will not work, the solution lies in the courage to face the crisis.”
He concluded by saying: “Courage and transparency are necessary in light of the lack of trust and a record of incitement.”
Meanwhile, US had expressed concern earlier that the crisis might affect its military and counter-terrorism operations and eventually increase the regional influence of Tehran.
Many diplomats from different countries like US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and British National Security Advisor Mark Sedwill, have urged both the parties to resolve the crisis through dialogue.
Qatar is also home to the American base in Al Udeid area, which US experts are urging to close down.
Former American diplomat Dennis Ross has previously said: “the reason Doha hosts the US military is to use our men and women in uniform as a security guarantee to do whatever they like—not, as the Qataris claim, to support a key counter terrorism installation.”
