Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said on Tuesday that Arab states that imposed sanctions on Qatar in June were not interested in a solution to the crisis.

Earlier in June the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt announced the severance of diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed a de facto blockade against the country, citing Doha's alleged support of Islamist extremist groups as a reason.

"We do not fear the boycott of these countries against us, we are a thousand times better off without them", the emir told members of the council and foreign dignitaries in Doha.

Sheikh Tamim says "their goal was not to reach a solution or settlement".

Qatar's achievements were realized despite the blockading countries making relentless efforts to disrupt and obstruct them by various means, which started with the blockade itself, and included pressure on other countries in addition to even spreading rumors and fabrications, and acting against hosting of the World Cup in 2022 by Qatar, the Emir said in his speech.

The world's largest exporter of liquified natural gas, Qatar has claimed it can cope with the demands of the dispute, despite the boycott being put in place by former regional allies and major trading partners.

"Qatar has pursued a policy of self-restraint, moderate response to maintain the fraternal relations among the gulf peoples", the emir added.
