UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash published a series of tweets in which he referred to the movement of Muslim Brotherhood leaders in several countries to defend Qatar in a time when Qatari citizens were themselves reluctant to comment.
Gargash said Muslim Brotherhood members were only looking to secure their own interests that protected with Qatar’s support, while Qataris realize that they do not benefit disengaging with their Gulf neighbors.
“An observer of the crisis sees the movement of the Brotherhood and their allies’ loyalty not to the countries but to their parties and to change the systems and disillusioned our wealthy brother,” Gargash wrote on Twitter.
Gargash pointed out that several countries’ decision, including the UAE, to boycott Qatar is directly linked to the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood. "It is in poor evaluation and management at the decision-making circles at our brotherly country. How can you win the battle and scream through your media while losing your family and your surroundings who are your real guarantees?” Gargash asked.
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said a day earlier that it is in Qatar’s hand to stop financing terror and inciting extremism across the region.
Jubeir’s statements came on Tuesday, less than a week before a deadline on Qatar to comply with a 13-point list of demands from several Gulf and Arab boycotting countries expires.
