Qatar and Turkey refuse to close Turkish base as France offers to mediate Gulf crisis

Qatar and Turkey refuse to close Turkish base as France offers to mediate Gulf crisis

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in Doha on Saturday that Paris wants to assist Kuwait-led mediation on the crisis between Qatar and four other Arab states.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Samer Shehata of the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, however, said that while France's voice lends more support for Qatar, it does "not have a tremendous amount" of influence in the crisis. Later, the USA secretary of state held a six-way meeting in Jeddah.

Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, was quoted in May as praising Gaza's ruling Hamas movement and calling Iran an "Islamic power".

But Ghandour dismissed these reports, saying Sudan is adhering to its reconciliatory stance on the Gulf crisis and calls for a solution through the Kuwaiti mediation.

Le Drian also said France counted on "reinforcing cooperation with Qatar in the fight against terrorism, particularly in combating terrorism financing". Although the crisis abated a little for a few days during his trip, the crisis and it roots are here to stay.

The French Foreign Minister began his two-day Gulf tour from Doha in Qatar.

Kuwait is trying to mediate the dispute.

Saudi Arabia's Government has accused Qatar of "grave violations, both in secret and in public".

"Underneath the surface however. the U.S. - including Tillerson - likely sees significant strategic and lucrative benefits to any long-running stand-off between these states".

Qatar appealed for "dialogue" to resolve the row while US President Donald Trump spoke to Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to urge all parties "to negotiate constructively".

On June 22, the bloc presented Qatar with a list of demands necessary to break the blockade, a list that Qatar deemed unworkable. Even Doha got the upper hand and set conditions of its own and announced it would meet those countries' demands only if they, too, fulfil Doha's demands on regional issues.

Also, press reports claimed the four countries asked Washington to delay the permanent lifting of sanctions on Sudan in order to put pressure on Khartoum government which refuses to sever relations with Qatar. In fact, the U.S. adopted a dual policy in this crisis.

They accused Qatar of supporting terrorism, having close relations with Iran, and using exiled activists and media outlets to attack Arab regimes. That is why Saudi Arabia failed to implement its policies vis-à-vis Qatar. This was the message delivered to me by the Emir of the state of Qatar.

"Running local hospitals or schools, typical Brotherhood activities elsewhere in the region, is popular but inevitably undercuts the state's legitimacy".

The United States and its Western allies have vast economic and political interests in the Gulf, which pumps one fifth of the world's oil supplies.

Gargash, who regularly comments on the Qatar crisis to his 437,000 followers on Twitter, said the Arab bloc, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain, and Qatar were "heading into the long estrangement", Xinhua news agency reported.
