Qatar Must Improve Relations with Neighbors, Desist from Backing up Extremism, Terrorism, Regional Destabilization, Saudi Ambassador to UK Says.
Riyadh, Sha'ban 9, 1439, Apr 25, 2018, SPA -- In a letter to the London-based Financial Times daily, Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf bin Abdulaziz, Saudi Ambassador to the United Kingdom, asserted that Qatar should improve relations with neighboring countries and desist from backing extremism, terrorism and regional destabilization. That was included in a jointly written letter by the ambassadors of governments of states advocating counterterrorism, in London, namely Prince Mohammed bin Nauwaf, Sheikh Fawaz bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Bahrain, UAE Ambassador Suleiman Al-Mazrui and the Egyptian Ambassador Nasser Kamil, as a rejoinder to Financial Times' editorial comment under the motto: "the continuing blockade of Qatar makes no sense". Governments of the quartet boycotting countries do not like to reduce Qatar to a Vassal State, as the editorial comment claims, however they envision Qatar to abide by international standards relating to combat terrorism, the jointly authored letter explained. Sheikh Tamim of Qatar has made remarks to the media, following a meeting with the US President Donald Trump, at the White House on 11th of April, in which he claims that his country does not tolerate persons who fund and back terrorism, nonetheless, within two days of the Qatari Emir comments, the Qatari Premier attended a wedding hosted by Abdulrahman Al-Naeimi, classified as a terrorism financier, whom the US Treasury Department claimed that "He had overseen transfers of $2 million per month, to Qaeda network, in Iraq", the letter pointed out. Al-Naeimi is among a lot of terrorism financiers who are regularly doing such acts form inside of Qatar and keeping moving freely and unpunished, in a stark example of systematic support for terrorists, the letter stated. Ambassadors' joint letter added that within days, and away from improving relations with neighbors, Qatar utilized its media network to back up and promote terrorists' acts, in the whole region, clearly through relaying Houthi militias calls to wage offences on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Qatar says something to the Western capitals, however, it does the contrary, in fact, the letter reaffirmed, advising Qatar, instead of concentrating on the PR campaigns, it shall change its conduct, in order to put an end to such a conflict, the letter concluded. -- SPA 20:57 LOCAL TIME 17:57 GMT www.spa.gov.sa/1756484
