Saudi Foreign Ministry said that Qatar News Agency's statement continued to distort facts. Saudi Arabia announced in a statement that it will not agree on starting a dialogue with Qatar until the release of an official statement clarifying its position.
A Saudi official in the Foreign Ministry said that what Qatar News Agency published does not have any relevance to the truth, and that its statement is a continuation of the distortion of facts by the Qatari authority.
This clearly shows that Qatar’s authority has not yet understood that Saudi Arabia does not have any tolerance to altering truths and breaking of agreements.
The content of the call received by Saudi Crown Prince from the Emir of Qatar was changed minutes after it was over.
The communication was at the request of Qatar to start a dialogue with the four countries regarding their demands.
This proves that the authority in Qatar is not serious about a resolution and is continuing the same policies, the official added.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declares that no dialogue or communication will take place with Qatar authorities until a clear statement confirming its position is made public, and that Qatar's statements are in agreement with its obligations.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received a telephone call today from Qatar Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, reported Saudi News agency (SPA).
The Emir of Qatar expressed his interest to discuss the demands of the four countries towards ensuring the best interest of all states involved.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman welcomed Sheikh Tamim’s will to sit and initiate talks towards a resolution to Qatar crisis.
Saudi Arabia affirms that the failure of the Qatari policy does not reflect the confidence needed for starting a dialogue.
