During a meeting with his American counterpart in Washington, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed said on Thursday that Qatar must stop interfering in the internal affairs of its neighbors.

The Emirati foreign minister also spoke with US Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin and discussed joint efforts to close terrorist financing networks that were designated under the recently released Qatar-linked terror list.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain collectively designated 59 individuals and 12 institutions last week that have financed terrorist organizations and received support from Qatar.
