Sheikh Sultan Al-Thani: Qatar’s isolation grows further due to current regime
Qatar’s Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim al-Thani tweeted on Monday his frustration of his country’s growing isolation due to what he called the “reckless policies of the Two Hamad regimes”.
Al-Thani’s tweet came a day after Arab world leaders gathered in Saudi Arabia’s Dhahran for the 29th Arab League Summit where the summit focused on status of Jerusalem and Iran’s aggression in the region. The Qatar crisis was not part of the summit’s agenda.
“Our great neighbor is hosting the Arabs at the #JerusalemSummit. We are saddened by the isolation that we have achieved thanks to the reckless policies of Two Hamads regime. It is regrettable and sad to reach this tragic situation for the first time in the history of Qatar,” Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim tweeted.
“Day after day my isolation grows further and our people are getting frustrated while the Arabs meet to discuss their issues at the #JerusalemSummit. The Two Hamads regime chants in distance in the path of stubbornness and split in ranks,
“God willing, my country will come back very soon as a shield for its sister the dear Kingdom and our brothers in the Gulf and the Arab world,” he added.
Sheikh Sultan’s father, Sheikh Suhaim bin Hamad bin Abdullah al-Thani, was a member of the ruling family of Qatar who served as the country's first foreign minister. His brother, Khalifa bin Hamad al-Thani, was the emir of Qatar at the time.
His son, Sultan, became one of the first to publicly oppose from the current ruling family led by Emir Tamim bin Hamad when several countries decided to sever ties with Qatar over its support and financing of terrorist groups and interfering in the internal affairs of neighboring countries.
