Arab states send Qatar 13 demands to end crisis

Arab states send Qatar 13 demands to end crisis”

Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries that have cut ties to Qatar have reportedly issued a list of demands to end a major Gulf crisis, insisting that Qatar shut down the Al Jazeera network, close a Turkish military base and scale down ties with Iran. The AP obtained a copy from one of the countries involved in the dispute.

"Shut down Al Jazeera channels and affiliated channels", said point six of the document written in Arabic, the title of which translates as Joint Requirements for Qatar.

The minister added that the base in Qatar benefits the security of the entire region.

The blockade has had many major impacts for Qatar, including essential trade being cut off and many flights suspended. Or its ties to Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood? Since then the four nations have placed an embargo on all traffic to the country.

The Saudi alliance severed diplomatic and transport links with Qatar on June 5, accusing their fellow Gulf Cooperation Council member of supporting terrorism.

Işık said he is yet to see the list of 13 demands, including the closing down the Turkish military installation, made by four Arab states that are now boycotting Qatar over alleged support for terrorism. The Qatari government wasn't immediately available to comment.

According to the list, Qatar must refuse to naturalize citizens from the four countries and expel those now in Qatar.

Gargash alleged Qatar had leaked them in "an attempt to abort the mediation in a childish act that we have grown accustomed to from our brother".

He warned that "leakage will further exasperate and prolong the Qatar crisis".

The US has been pushing them to present Qatar with a list of demands with Kuwait as a mediator.

The list also demands that Qatar pay reparations to the four countries for damages or costs incurred because of Qatari policies, according to Reuters.

The list apparently gives Qatar 10 days to implement the demands. The move has left Qatar, whose only land border is shared with Saudi Arabia, under a de facto blockade by its neighbors.

Gulf officials have also accused Qatar-based media outlets, namely Al Jazeera, of promoting extremism and interfering in the internal affairs of Egypt and Bahrain, among other countries.

"I have not seen this request formally yet, but it might mean intervention in bilateral relations", he said, according to private broadcaster NTV.

Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said on Friday that the Turkish base aims to train Qatari soldiers and increase the tiny Persian Gulf nation's security.

Hand over "terrorist figures" and wanted individuals from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain to their countries of origin.
