France urges Qatar's neighbors to ease blockade

Report UAE Behind Hacking of Qatari Media

HE the Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani met the French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian, who is now visiting the country.

On a possible exclusion of Qatar from the six member states forming Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the UAE minister pointed out that "Although we may lose the confused and awkward neighbour. we gain clarity and transparency".

The growing crisis unfolded on June 5, when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt severed ties with Qatar, officially accusing Doha of supporting "terrorism" and destabilizing the Middle East, allegations that Qatar says are unjustified and stem from false claims and assumptions. In return, the four feuding countries vowed to impose further sanctions on Doha. The Qatari government has denied the accusations, blasting the blockade as "unjustified" and a violation of global law.

Later addressing a joint press conference with his Saudi counterpart Adel Al-Jubeir, Le Drian commended Saudi Arabia's leadership in the fight against terrorism.
