People, groups with Qatar links labelled terrorists

09 June, 2017, 08:55 | Author: Essie Rivera

In an interview with BBC radio, UAE Ambassador to Russia Omar Saif Ghobash said Qatar had to choose between supporting extremism or supporting its neighbors.

"If anyone thinks they are going to impose anything on my internal affairs or my internal issues, this is not going to happen", Sheikh Mohammed said.

Al-Jazeera's offices have been shut down by authorities in Saudi Arabia and Jordan. "No one approached us directly and said look we have problems with this, and this and this".

In a sign of support for Doha, Turkey's parliament on Wednesday approved an agreement to expand the number of troops deployed to a Turkish base in Qatar.

"We chose to make it clear that enough is enough", Jubeir added. "Are we living really in the 21st century?" Qatar has strenuously denied the allegations.

EU, China to reaffirm support for climate pact
Anifa Kawooya, the vice chairperson of the Parliamentary Forum on Climate Change (PFCC) describes Trump's action as "absurd". By abandoning this agreement, President Trump is showing the world that an American commitment can be reversed on a whim.

But Sheikh Mohammed told the AP that Sheikh Tamim "is not going to leave the country while the country is in blockade", in effect turning down the mediation offer.

SPA, a Saudi state news agency, said the kingdom cut ties because Qatar "embraces multiple terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at disturbing stability in the region, including the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, and Al Qaeda, and promotes the message and schemes of these groups through their media constantly", according to Reuters. The Kuwaiti leader went to the UAE and Qatar on June 7 for talks on the crisis and is now back in Kuwait.

The Qatari Interior Ministry said late Wednesday that the website of the Qatar News Agency was initially hacked in April with "high techniques and innovative methods".

"It was started based on fabricated news, being wedged and being inserted in our national news agency, which was hacked and proved by the Federal Bureau of Investigation", he added. That's even after Kuwait's emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah flew to Qatar to discuss the crisis with officials.

Russian hackers are believed to have been part of the hack of the Qatar news agency, CNN reported Tuesday, raising concerns that the Russian government would continue to be involved in cyber operations to disrupt foreign elections and alliances. "But all those vague accusations without any solid argument we're not really ready to answer".
