Some progress in communication with UAE, says Qatar's FM
The end of the blockade with the signing of the Al-Ula declaration earlier this month has ushered in a new phase of Gulf unity, growth and prosperity.
As the Gulf States work toward strengthening ties, air, land and sea borders have been opened between Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain after nearly three and a half years. Talks are ongoing to resolve other issues.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Qatar’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani confirmed that there has been progress in communication with the UAE.
“There is some communication, and we look forward to continue the discussion and we are ready to address any issues that they have with Qatar or Qatar have with UAE,” the Minister said.
“We have resumed the flights already,” Sheikh Mohamed added.
He mentioned that Qatar and UAE are in direct communication and have been making efforts to address outstanding issues.
“Here in Qatar, we are forward looking,” the FM said. “We don’t need to be a hostage of the past.”
Sheikh Mohamed further said that Qatar’s foreign policy has been based on principles and these principles have never changed.
“We are going to support whatever the people will and whatever the people are going to seek for their countries. If they are going to seek for justice using peaceful ways to express what they think is right, Qatar will continue supporting the people,” he said.
