UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said it’s time that the Qatari leadership listens to its citizens’ opinion.
“The poll which was published about the Qataris’ opinion indicates that there is a public opinion that’s wiser than the government’s orientation. It’s time that the command listens to its citizens’ opinion,” Gargash said in a series of tweets, adding that the poll was carried out by an American academic institution.
“The people of Qatar voiced self-respect and demanded their government to be flexible and rejected its rapprochement with Iran and support of the Brotherhood,” Gargash said.
Gargash also commented on columnist Abdelrahman al-Rashed’s recent op-ed about Qatar’s options and said it was an “important” piece as Rashed “accurately describes (Doha’s) lack of political and diplomatic sense amid a documented decline that increases its isolation and crisis.”
He also said that Qatar has adopted screaming and pretending to be unjustly treated as a policy.
“We hope that wisdom prevails,” Gargash added.
