Demands to Qatar: Close Al Jazeera, reduce Iran ties

The United Arab Emirates on Friday accused Qatar of derailing mediation efforts by leaking the list of demands sent by his country and the three other Arab states that cut ties with Doha over its alleged support for terrorism.

The minister said he has yet to see the list of demands by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt and Bahrain, who reportedly asked Doha to "immediately terminate the Turkish military presence now in Qatar and end any joint military cooperation with Turkey inside of Qatar".

Kuwait has given Qatar a list of demands from Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations that includes shutting down Al-Jazeera and cutting diplomatic ties to Iran.

Four Arab states that have isolated Qatar have handed the country a list of 13 demands, including some that are likely to infuriate Doha and exacerbate the region's worst crisis in decades.

Those countries have now given Qatar 10 days to comply with all of the demands.

Turkey has turned down a demand by Saudi Arabia and its allies in the anti-Qatar coalition that its base in the tiny Gulf state is shut down.

According to the list, Qatar must refuse to naturalize citizens from the four countries and expel those now in Qatar. They prohibited Qatar from entering their airspace and imposed trade restraints and limitations on people's movements, and Saudi Arabia closed its land border with Qatar.

The list also demands that Qatar stop funding a host of other news outlets including Arabi21, Al-Araby Al-Jadeed and Middle East Eye.

In recent years especially, the Arabic-language channel has become closely associated with Qatar's promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Sunni Islamists around the region, including those who have advanced extremist or sectarian views on the channel.

He added that the airport will cater to 30-50 million passengers per year in next 10-15 years. There will be one runway in the first phase.

Doha did not have any immediate reaction to the list.

Qatar strongly denies the charge and claims those countries which have cut links are trying to change Doha's foreign policy.

The first batch of 25 Turkish soldiers left for Qatar early on Thursday and arrived at the country's Turkish military base on June 22.

Egypt and Yemen severed ties with Qatar, citing the nation's support for militant Islamist groups such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and affiliated organizations including Hamas.

The four countries severed ties with Qatar soon after a visit by President Trump to Saudi Arabia.

- Reduce diplomatic ties with Iran. For the following 10 years, Qatar would be monitored annually for compliance.

Anwar Gargash, the United Arab Emirates state minister for foreign affairs, said Qatar had to take seriously its list of demands or the diplomatic emergency would turn into a "divorce".
