Qatari Foreign Minister Abdurrahman Al-Thani criticized on Thursday the UAE over its economic boycott and hinted that Doha could also cut its gas supplies to Abu Dhabi.

Thani said the UAE depends on Qatari gas to provide 40 percent of its electricity.

He also said that Iran has expressed readiness to provide Qatar with food, adding that Iran will reserve three ports just for Qatar.
Meanwhile, he rejected escalations and any military options.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and transport links with Qatar on Monday.
