Iran's Rouhani says siege of Qatar 'unacceptable'

Worldwide actors and public figures in Qatar have slammed a 13-point list of demands - including one for the closure of the Al Jazeera news network - issued by four Arab states embroiled in a weeks-long political row with Doha.

Staff members of Al Jazeera International work at the news studio in Doha, Qatar. Limit cooperation to trade without violating either U.S. and United States sanctions or GCC security. That Qatar hosts a large USA military base and has the backing of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey likely makes any sort of attempt to oust the Emir by force virtually impossible. "They did not come back to us since that day and even though they still didn't come back to us on this, asking Turkey to pull back its troops (from Qatar) is disrespectful against Turkey".

Qatar's foreign minister on Saturday rejected the demands, saying they were proof that the four countries' actions had "nothing to do with combating terrorism - as the four contend - but were created to limit Qatar's sovereignty".

Mauritania followed suit shortly afterward, while Jordan has downgraded its diplomatic representation in Doha. Erdogan demanded. "No offence, but Turkey is not such an ordinary country". Cut relations with opposition elements in these countries and hand over relevant files. "This crisis could threaten the political stability of the ruling family in Qatar in the long term if it lasts". Agreement would decide mechanism. Qatar, however, has slammed the measures as unjustified, saying they are based on false claims and assumptions. Qatar received this list of conditions from Kuwait.

U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson said in a statement on Sunday that some of the demands on Qatar "will be very hard to meet", but did not reject them outright.

Erdogan said Turkey would "appreciate and embrace' Qatar's stance against the 13-article demand by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt".

"A productive next step would be for each of the countries to sit together and continue this conversation", he stated.

Highlighting that friendly and brotherly ties between Iranian and Qatari nations can benefit people of the region, Dr. Rouhani said "we look forward to having continuous cooperation with the Qatari government and strongly believe that numerous capacities for further bolstering ties between the two countries need to be properly exploited". Tillerson called on all parties to lower their rhetoric and to seek unity in the fight against terrorism.
