Expulsion of Qataris from Gulf states comes into effect

He has never entered the booming market in neighboring Qatar, however, despite years of trying.

"Qatar has been very busy, especially since 2011, since the onset of Arab uprisings but before that too, developing relations with basically everybody in the Middle East", Juneau said.

The State has defended its stance on aligning with the Gulf countries that have sanctioned Qatar over allegations of supporting terrorism, led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

"We consider Qatar an ally in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), countries and we do not seek to harm Qatari citizens, but the current situation must be corrected".

Qatari foreign minister Sultan bin Saad al-Muraikhi during a visit to Algiers Thursday hailed Algerian authorities for their positive neutral position. The Turkish parliament approved the deployment of troops to the base in Qatar only two days after the Gulf crisis broke out earlier this month.

Simmering tensions between the USA partners boiled over this month when Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, along with Egypt, severed ties with Qatar over its alleged support for extremism and imposed economic restrictions on it.

Gargash said there was a risk Iran and Turkey would try to fill the vacuum caused by the rift, but urged Ankara, which has supported Doha, to be neutral. "It's as if a death penalty decision has been taken for Qatar", Erdogan said. Iran and Turkey are now providing Qatar's required food supplies.

But Iqbal Jassat's freaky charge that Israel is behind the Saudi-led boycott of Qatar has taken things to an altogether new level.

The U.S. foreign policy has been pretty chaotic ever since President Donald Trump assumed power and this dispute between Qatar and its neighbours is another example of that, Juneau says.

Saudi Arabia objected to these revelations, and was unappeased by Qatar's attempt to explain away the article as "fake news".

"The secretary will continue these efforts".

The push by Sisi to boycott Turkey comes after the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan harshly criticised and condemned the Egyptian regime for its military coup against the first democratically-elected president Mohamed Morsi.
