Saudi Arabia 'working on Qatar grievances list'

LONDON, June 17, 2017

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said on Friday that a list of grievances involving Qatar was being drawn up and would be made public soon, reported Reuters. 
The minister, Adel Al-Jubeir, said Qatar should respond to demands to halt its support for "extremism and terrorism" which, he said, were being made by the whole world and not just Gulf states. 
Four Arab states - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt - severed diplomatic relations with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and Iran.
The UAE has also decided to blacklist Qatari individuals and entities, stated the report.
Speaking to journalists in London, Jubeir said: "I would not call them demands. I would say it is a list of grievances that need to be addressed and that the Qataris need to fix." 
"We are working on those with our Bahraini, Emirati and Egyptian partners in order to compile this list and present it to the Qataris, and I think it will be done fairly soon," he added.
