Qatar calls on Arab nations to respect sovereignty and resolve differences through talks

By QLNews

Qatar has always stood for peace and resolving crises through discussions and negotiations.

Resolution of different crises around the Arab world should be based on the principle of dialogue, respect for the sovereignty and independence of states and non-interference in the internal affairs of any state, said Qatar’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Sultan bin Saad Al Muraikhi, according to Gulf Times.

He was speaking during the opening session of the 151st session of the Council of the League of Arab States at the level of Foreign Ministers.

He noted that the Arab world was facing many dramatic developments that will reflect on all its issues, primarily Palestine. 

Al Muraikhi reiterated Qatar’s steadfast stance and support for the Palestinian cause and the firm rights of the brotherly Palestinian people, led by their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state.

This should be done with East Jerusalem as its capital by international resolutions on the matter. He said the Arab world must work together to ensure the realisation of that goal, reported The Peninsula.

The minister also discussed the situation in Yemen, describing it as ‘tragic’ due to the destruction and killings taking place in the country. 

He said the Arab countries must push all parties in the conflict towards national reconciliation in line with the GCC initiative and UN Security Council resolution no 2216, reported Qatar Tribune.

Al Muraikhi reaffirmed Qatar’s keenness on Yemen’s unity, independence and territorial integrity. He called on the international community to help the Yemeni people to overcome the conditions. 

He also called on the international community to take appropriate measures to ensure that the dangerous humanitarian conditions do not deteriorate.

He discussed the situation in Libya and noted that outside interference in the affairs of the country could threaten its sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity. He said that it would also further complicate the crisis and prevent reaching the national consensus sought by the Libyans.
