Cairo –   Qatar should not host the 2022 World Cup unless it changes it policies “supporting extremism and terrorism,” a United Arab Emirates (UAE) minister said on Tuesday.

UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash gave this warning amid the latest attack on Doha in a four-month long dispute in the region.

He said that hosting the World Cup should not be tainted by “support of extremist individuals” and organisations or “terrorist figures.”

“Qatar’s hosting of World Cup 2022 should include a repudiation of policies supporting extremism and terrorism. Doha should review its record,” Gargash said.

The UAE is one of four countries which severed its diplomatic and transportation links with Qatar on June 5.
