"Whatever relates to our foreign affairs... no one has the right to discuss," Sheikh Mohammed said during a visit to Paris, calling for "dialogue based on clear foundations" over accusations that Qatar supports extremist groups.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain halted land, air and sea traffic to Qatar and blacklisted several Qatari-linked organizations and individuals.

They accuse the small oil-rich nation of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and other groups they consider terrorist. Qatar, which denies supporting terrorism, is already feeling the pain.
