Gulf Crisis: US praises Qatar’s fight against terrorism, calling for blockade to be lifted

“USA is satisfied with the efforts exerted by Qatar so as to implement an agreement inked last week which aims to combat the financing of terrorism,” pointed out, on Friday,  US Secretary of State,  calling Arab countries to lift the “land blockade” imposed on Doha, the Peninsula reported.

Earlier, Tillerson paid visits to a number of Gulf States to persuade them to help solve the worst regional political crisis in years, however, all his efforts were in vain.

The Secretary of State told reporters before a meeting with Oman’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Yusuf Bin Alawi that the Qataris are implementing the agreement “fully, so I think we are satisfied with their efforts,” Reuters reported. “Qatar is ready to negotiate with the four countries [Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt] and discuss their demands. But it is important for Doha to respect the sovereignty and dignity of [itself as well as the other four] during these discussions.”

He expressed his hope that the four blockading countries will consider, as a gesture of goodwill, the lifting of the land blockade. “I think that this has the worst impact on the people of Qatar,” Tillerson added.
