Arab nations urge Qatar to accept 6 principles to combat extremism

Anwar Gargash the UAE state minister for foreign affairs

Anwar Gargash the UAE state minister for foreign affairs

He criticised a list of demands by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt to end sanctions they imposed on Doha last month over allegations Qatar funds terrorist groups and is allied to their arch foe Iran.

In a speech due to be delivered in London on Monday, the United Arab Emirates foreign minister, Anwar Gargash, will warn: "You can not be part of a regional organisation dedicated to strengthening mutual security and furthering mutual interests, and at the same time undermine that security and harm those interests".

The UAE envoy in Washington earlier called The Post story as "false".

The UAE government has responded by describing the Washington Post article as "false".

While much of what Qatar's critics charge is true, you also have to consider the source.

The four states accuse Qatar of disrupting regional security by supporting Islamist opposition groups and extremists. "Inciting violence, encouraging radicalization, and undermining the stability of its neighbors", the statement further read.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, pictured meeting Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir, has been in the Middle East attempting to find a solution to the crisis in the Persian Gulf.

The diplomatic crisis in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has taken another turn. In the midst of this crisis, however, the Turkish state has come down firmly on Qatar's side.

In May, Qatar-based broadcaster Al-Jazeerahad said that it was under a wide scale cyber attack which had targeted "all systems". The insistence comes "in light of what the quartet states see as Qatar's stalling and procrastination, and lack of concern for the concerns of the four states", he said. The Post did not identify the intelligence officials it spoke to for the report. They then broke relations with Qatar and declared a trade and diplomatic boycott, sending the region into a political and diplomatic tailspin that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has warned could undermine USA counterterrorism efforts against the Islamic State.

The newspaper carries allegations by the U.S. secret services that UAE orchestrated a hacker attack to plant false quotes attributed to the emir of Qatar in favour of Hamas and Iran, which were at the origins of the crisis.
