Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani said during the conclusion of his Asian tour in Indonesia that Doha is ready for dialogue to resolve the Arab boycott crisis.
Sheikh Tamim tried once again to present his country as a victim under siege and in need of dialogue, saying: “Qatar is open to dialogue in accordance with agreements binding on all parties and respect for the sovereignty of states, we are open to this”.
However, Qatar’s position since the beginning of the crisis has obstructed mediation efforts more than once, including that of Kuwaiti emir’s attempts to resolve the crisis as Doha categorically rejected the conditions and demands of the boycotting countries.
Contradictions were plentiful during the Qatari Emir’s Asian trip as Sheikh Tamim said that the Arab boycott had a negative impact on the life of the citizen, despite his previous assertions that normal life was not affected in back in Doha.
“The unjust siege on the state of Qatar had humanitarian effects on our people of Qatar,” the emir said during his trip while during his first public speech to his citizens that: “State institutions provided all the needs of the population”.
So far, Qatar’s efforts to round up support in Asia has been unsuccessful as Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo chose to make no comments on the crisis while Malaysia simply called on the parties to resolve the crisis.
