Arab nations have urged Qatar to commit to six principles for combating extremism and terrorism on Wednesday. It said to negotiate a plan with specific measures to implement them in a step that could head for an early resolution of the ongoing crisis.
Notably, four Arab nations have cut ties with the tiny gulf country. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain broke diplomatic links with Qatar in early June. They alleged that Qatar supports extremist groups, a charge Qatar rejects.
Initially, they made 13 demands that were dismissed by Qatar.
Saudi Arabia’s UN Ambassador Abdallah Al Mouallimi told correspondents on Tuesday that the four countries are now committed to the six principles. It has been approved to by their foreign ministers at a meeting in Cairo on July 5. Now, it is to see whether Qatar agrees to these six principles.
