Qatar crisis : Arab puts steep demands for Qatar to eliminate embargo
Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries that have cut ties to Qatar issued a steep list of demands on Thursday to end the crisis. They insist that their Persian Gulf neighbour shutter Al-Jazeera, cut back diplomatic ties to Iran, and sever all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. In a 13-point list – presented to the Qataris by Kuwait, which is helping mediate the crisis – the countries also demand an end to Turkey's military presence in Qatar. These countries have now given Qatar 10 days to comply with all of the demands, which include paying an unspecified sum in compensation.
