Qatar to Continue Gas Delivery to UAE Despite Diplomatic Row

When it is becoming obvious that the very goal of Riyadh summit and the so-called IMA was to isolate Iran and now Qatar, Pakistan must seek an immediate withdrawal from that alliance before it is too late.

"Even if the boats had entered Saudi waters, the coastguards were not authorised to open fire", Majid Aghababaie, head of border affairs at Iran's interior minstry said. One of the boats is still missing.

"Trump has been tweeting and expressing on some occasions very clear support for Saudi Arabia but the rest of the USA government apparatus has been taking a much more nuanced position", Juneau said.

It said that it has been leading the region in attacking what it called the roots of "terrorism" by giving young people hope through jobs, educating hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and funding community programmes to challenge the agendas of armed groups.

Predominantly Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi kingdom have been regional rivals and support opposite sides in conflicts across the Middle East, including the wars in Syria and Yemen.

Iran's Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi has also put the blame on Riyadh.

President Trump has done business with royals from Saudi Arabia for at least 20 years, since he sold the Plaza Hotel to a partnership formed by a Saudi prince.

Abdullah said in a statement the pair "were detained from our hotel by Saudi police in Makkah after a live analysis" on the crisis with Qatar.

He noted that the Saudi Arabians are the importers of the main bulk of Somaliland livestock and the bilateral relations between the two has been in place for ages.

Four Arab states - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt - severed diplomatic relations with Qatar on 5 June, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and Iran, charges that Doha has rejected. "Both Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have very clearly come out in very nuanced ways saying this dispute goes against USA interests in the Persian Gulf and we would really appreciated if the actors involved could sit down and resolve this in a peaceful manner".

The country has stepped in to provide fresh diary products to Doha after traditional supply lines from the UAE and Saudi Arabia were cut.

President Donald Trump has sided with Saudi Arabia and its allies, including Bahrain, the UAE and Egypt, claiming Doha had "historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level".
