Qatari Emir says crisis with Gulf states ‘useless’, UAE says Emir is ‘confused’
Following the speech of Qatar’s Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad, before the Munich Security Conference, the UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, said that he hopes the Emir will “return to his senses” and stop supporting terrorism.
During his speech, Sheikh Hamad said that the crisis between his country and other Gulf states, including Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, is “useless”, adding that Qatar is “stronger than ever before”.
In his tweet, Gargash said that public relations companies will not help Qatar solve their problems.
“The repeated speeches, playing the victim, the awaited phone calls and the public relations companies will not solve the crisis of the confused, which is expected to continue to 2020,” Gargash said.
“I pray that during his confusion, he will not deceive himself, return to his senses and seek wisdom while abandoning the policy of harm, and supporting extremism and terrorism which he has been doing,” he continued in his tweet.
The Dubai Deputy Chief of Police, Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan, said in his speech at the conference that the Emir shows “a lack of understanding of the importance of Gulf cooperation.”
