Arab countries in row with Qatar are not interested in solution: Emir

Doha   –      Emir of Qatar Tamim Hamad said on Tuesday that Arab states that imposed sanctions on his country in June over allegations of supporting terrorism were not interested in a solution to the crisis.

Speaking to members of the Gulf Arab state’s Shoura Council, Tamim said his government was preparing for elections to the consultative body.

The necessary legislation would be ready in 2018.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar on June 5, accusing Doha of financing terrorism and cozying up to their arch- rival Iran.

Qatar denies the charges.

“We express our readiness for a compromise within the framework of a dialogue based on mutual respect for sovereignty and common obligations.

“On the other hand, we recognise that the indicators that come from the blockade states show they do not want to reach a solution,” he said.

The four countries have “put pressure and published rumors and fabrications” against Qatar hosting the World Cup in 2022.

The emir, who assumed office in 2013 after his father stepped down, also said his government was currently working on the instruments needed for elections, which he said would be ready in 2018.

Plans for elections to the 45-member body originally envisaged for 2013 were never carried out.

In his speech, the emir also said his government was focusing on completing strategic projects to help the country cope with the sanctions imposed by its neighbours, including ports, water and food security, and to encourage investments
