Weeks after the boycott, no positive signs from Qatar

Published: Updated:

There are no positive signs from Qatar, weeks after the Gulf boycott. The Qatari attempts aim to put some pressure on its neighbors to end the boycott at times, and to push for a decision to re-open the Qatari airspace at other times.

Doha said that the list of demands of the the Gulf States - Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahraion – along with Egypt, is unreasonable and unrealistic.

At the same time, it announced its intention to review the list and send an official response through the Foreign Ministry. This is what has prompted politicians to question the quality of the review that Qatar will undertake as it initially described the demands as unrealistic.

For his part, Yousef al-Otaiba,the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to the US, considered that it was better for Qatar to openly express its point of view instead of leaking news about the document, stressing that if Doha does not abide by those demands, things will not change.

UN offer

The escalation of the crisis between Qatar and its neighbors has prompted the United Nations to offer help in resolving the dispute.

It is worth noting that Qatar attempted to end the boycott by going to the International Civil Aviation Organization of the United Nations, to request more routes to be added to its airspace, and therefore, the organization is scheduled to hold a special session next Friday to discuss the country’s demand.

For its part, the United States, which is trying to mediate between the parties, asked in a statement issued by the White House, the three Gulf States and Egypt to resolve the crisis amicably, considering the crisis as a family issue.
