Arab states issue 13 demands to end Qatar crisis

Arab states issue 13 demands to end Qatar crisis

Pointedly, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed ties with Qatar on June 5 over allegations that the Arabian Gulf country funds terrorism - an accusation that President Donald Trump has echoed.

While the list has not been officially confirmed, AP said it came from "one of the countries involved in the dispute".

- Reduce diplomatic ties with Iran.

Trade and commerce with Iran that complies with global and US sanctions will be allowed to continue.

They accuse Qatar of supporting the extreme vision of groups such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS).

The rift among the Gulf nations is the latest iteration in a long-standing conflict over a number of issues, including Qatar's support of the pan-Arab network Muslim Brotherhood, its economic ties with Iran and the influence it has in the Arab world thanks to its state-sponsored news channel Al Jazeera.

Qatar must hand over all designated terrorists, wanted by the four countries; freeze their assets; stop hosting others in the future.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt had released a joint statement naming 59 Qatar-based or -funded individuals and 12 organizations labeled "terrorist" on June 15. Freeze their assets, and provide any desired information about their residency, movements and finances.




The four countries have not made their demands public yet.

For much of the month, most major trade routes into Qatar have been closed by its neighbors - including Saudi Arabia, which occupies the peninsula nation's only overland border, through which it receives roughly 40 percent of its imports. Don't grant citizenship to anyone from 4 countries (who wrote demands), strip citizenship from those that have been granted who violates law of these countries. However, this explanation was not considered as convincing by several countries, including Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Furthermore, Qatar was also also asked to pay reparations to the four countries for any damage or costs incurred as a result of Qatari policies.

Decades of cold war among GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) members in the Middle East resulted in the Qatar crisis in 2017.

There was no immediate response from Qatar but Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said earlier that it would not negotiate until the punitive measures were lifted.

It has also opened its airspace to flights to and from Qatar, which has been banned from using Saudi and other countries' airspace.

If Qatar agrees to comply, The Associated Press reported, it will be audited once a month for the first year, and monitored regularly over the next 10 years.

Compensation: Give compensations to victims and losses on 4 countries because of Qatar policy in last few years.
