Linked With ISIS, al-Qaeda: Six Nations Cut Ties With Qatar

Qatar on Monday slammed the decisions of six nations to sever ties with it, saying they were 'unjustified' and aimed to put Doha under political 'guardianship'.

The United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Egypt and the Maldives announced they will be joining Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and withdrawing their diplomatic staff from Qatar, over claims that the country supported Islamist groups, earlier on Monday.

The diplomatic broadside threatens the international prestige of Qatar, which is set to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It has for years presented itself as a mediator and power broker for the region's many disputes.

Emirates, Etihad Airways, Air Arabia, FlyDubai and Saudi Arabian Airlines have suspended all flights to Qatar, after the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain said they would cut all air, land and sea links with Qatar within 24 hours.

'The measures are unjustified and are based on false and baseless claims,' the Qatari foreign ministry said in a statement, referring to the steps taken by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

'The aim is clear, and it is to impose guardianship on the state. This by itself is a violation of its (Qatar's) sovereignty as a state,' Qatar added.

As organizers work to plan the upcoming 2022 World Cup in Qatar, a FIFA spokesperson refused to comment to MailOnline when asked if the event would be moved.

'FIFA is in regular contact with the Qatar 2022 Local Organising Committee and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy handling matters relating to the 2022 FIFA World Cup,' the spokesperson said. 'We have no further comments for the time being.'

It wasn't immediately clear how the cutting of ties would affect Qatar Airways, one of the region's major long-haul carriers, though the airline suspended all flights to Saudi Arabia on Monday.

Abu Dhabi's state-owned Etihad Airways said it would suspend all flights to and from Doha from Tuesday morning until further notice.

  1. Six countries are getting their relations cut with Qatar. This is not a good news at all. Unless they are not united they will be defeated from the Non-Muslim world. But here i want to know what's the best essay writing website? Muslim world should think in this way if they want prosperity.
