UAE has denied rumors about hacking the Qatar’s state news agency, which took place in May, BBC reported on Monday.
The Washington Post cited US intelligence officials as saying the UAE had orchestrated the posting of incendiary quotes attributed to Qatar’s emir that he insisted were fabricated.
The incident has helped in boosting the level of crisis in the diplomatic ties between Qatar and its neighboring countries.
UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, told the BBC, on Monday, the Post’s report was “untrue”.
He also reiterated that the UAE and five other Arab nations did not ask FiFA to withdraw the hosting of World Cup 2022 from Qatar.
