Ever since the illegal siege of Qatar began on June 5, the country had made its stand clear, that the premises for the siege was entirely fictitious.

Qatar’s foreign minister Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani has reiterated that stand, saying the ongoing Gulf crisis was fabricated. He said the recent developments related to the Gulf crisis were not needed, especially in this period of time of multiple conflicts, according to Gulf Times.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Belgium’s Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, Sheikh Mohamed said the Gulf crisis broke out on the basis of a cyber attack targeting Qatar followed by a siege of the Qatari people which is now in its third month.
Sheikh Mohamed said the despair of the siege countries has reached such a point that they are buying TV spots for ads in various television stations to market their ideas against Qatar.
The Minister noted that his Belgian counterpart is well aware that Qatar is participating in the global efforts to combat terrorism and is working with its partners at the international level to confront terrorism and financing of terrorist activities.

“We’ve talked about terrorism in its true sense, in accordance with the international definition, not on the basis of its definition by the siege countries,” Sheikh Mohamed was quoted as saying by The Peninsula.

Qatar had recently signed a pathbreaking deal with the USA to combat terrorism and its financing.
