Qatar Lauds Russia's Offer on Food Supplies Amid Row With Arab States

Kelley Robertson | 12 June, 2017, 08:03

"Morocco, which remains closely linked to Gulf countries in all fields despite geographic distance, is very concerned with this crisis although it is not directly involved in it", the statement said, noting that the North African Kingdom has adopted a constructive neutrality "which does not confine it to a passive observation of a disturbing escalation between brotherly countries".

Qatar has said citizens of states that have cut ties with the emirate will be allowed to stay in the country despite measures against its own nationals.

"Iran Air has so far transported food and vegetables with four flights to Qatar", Shahrokh Noushabadi was also quoted as saying by Fars News Agency on Saturday.

It said Qatar was acting in "accordance with its firm beliefs and principles".

Al Sabah said that Qatar is ready to respond to the efforts made by H H Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah to reach an agreement.

Trump on Friday accused Qatar of being a "high level" sponsor of terrorism. Qatari leaders are "willing to hold dialogue" to end the crisis, he said. "(It) gives others the impression the USA does not know how to manage the relationship with its allies or is incapable".

DOHA, June 11 Qatar's official overseer of charities denied on Sunday that philanthropic groups in the country backed terrorism, days after U.S. President Donald Trump backed a move by some Arab states to pressure Doha over alleged militant financing.

Last Monday, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Yemen, and Libya's eastern-based government, in addition to Maldives, cut their ties with the State of Qatar.

But it was importing 80 percent of its food from bigger Gulf Arab neighbours before they cut ties and is now in talks with Iran and Turkey to secure food and water supplies.

Iran said the planes were filled with vegetables and that it plans to send 100 tons of fresh fruit and legumes every day to the import-dependent nation, according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The NHRC said in a statement on Sunday that a hotline set up by Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain to assist mixed Qatari families who faced the prospect of deportation and expulsion was "too vague to have any practical impact" and was "void of a mechanism to be of assistance to those affected".
