The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt issued an official statement on Friday September 08, 2017, asserting that they appreciate the mediation of His Highness Amir of Kuwait and his commendable efforts to restore Qatari authority to the right path.

Kuwait’s Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah declared Qatar's willingness to recognize the 13 demands and to prepare for negotiations durring a joint press conference with US president Trump in Washington, on Thursday.

However, they stress that the dialogue on the implementation of the demands should not be preceded by any conditions.

The four countries also regret what the Emir of Kuwait said about the success of the mediation by stopping military intervention; stressing that the military option was not and will not be a resolution for the Qatar crisis.

The anti-terror states added in their statement that the crisis is not only a Gulf dispute, but with many Arab and Islamic countries that declared their stand from Qatar.

Other countries around the world have been unable to declare their position because of Qatar’s deep penetration in their affairs and for fear of the consequences, especially with Qatar’s previous support of coups, financing of terrorism, and hate speech.

The statements of Qatar's Foreign Minister after the Amir's statement confirm Qatar's rejection of the dialogue without lifting the boycott measures taken by the four countries to protect their interests legally and politically and setting preconditions for dialogue confirms Qatar's lack of seriousness in dialogue, combating and financing terrorism and interfering in the internal affairs of countries.

The four countries appreciated the position of US President Donald Trump in his firm assertion that the only way to resolve the crisis is the need to stop the support and financing of terrorism and his unwillingness to resolve the crisis unless this is achieved.
