Qatar won't cut gas to UAE - Qatar Petroleum CEO

The U.A.E. minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, said an agreement would require Qatar to stop supporting Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Qaeda - a charge it denies.

Gulf Arab annoyance at Qatar flared into open anger in 2011, when Qatar quickly embraced the Arab Spring uprisings, particularly in Egypt, Libya and Syria.

"Unfortunately, some Arab states were silent when it came to Qatar".

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".

United States and Arab sources are claiming the two nations are hoping to develop relations with each other, starting with allowing Israel to set up business in Saudi Arabia and giving permission for Israeli airline El Al to use Saudi airspace in its flights, reports The Times.

"So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off".

When it is becoming obvious that the very objective 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. Russian Federation has also voiced support, and Turkey has stepped in to send food.

There are a number of converging interests between Turkey and Qatar, he says. What leadership role Pakistan can play in preventing an impeding armed conflict in the Gulf and how it can withstand growing Saudi pressure over Islamabad to take a position against Qatar?

Furthermore, the United States and Qatar announced on Wednesday the signing of a deal for the purchase of F-15 fighter jets with an initial cost of $12 billion, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA). This is going to occupy us for the better part of the summer - and well beyond, actually.
