Qatar is attempting to contain and counter the effects of the Arab boycott against it, a US report this week has found.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Doha in June, accusing it of supporting and sponsoring terrorism.
All the while, Qatar has been attempting to negotiate deals with US public relations and advertising firms, spending nearly $5 million on campaigns mediated through US social media since June. The country’s extensive spending on the propaganda aimed to win over hearts and minds, and encourage sympathy for Doha, the report said.
According to the Washington-based Center for Responsive Politics, Qatar has employed seven media firms to increase its propaganda over the last three months alone to counter the boycott’s repercussions.
