Anwar Gargash: UAE not involved in Qatar hacking

Meanwhile, Qatar has pointed toward USA intelligence officials who revealed the UAE's involvement of being behind an alleged cyber-attack on Doha's state media, which set into motion the current diplomatic crisis.

Later that day, the official Qatar News Agency quoted Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani as criticising USA "hostility" towards Iran, describing it as an "Islamic power that can not be ignored", and calling Hamas the "legitimate representative of the Palestinian people".

"The information published in the Washington Post on 16 July 2017, which revealed the involvement of the United Arab Emirates. and senior Emirati officials in the hacking of Qatar News Agency, unequivocally proves that this hacking crime took place", a Qatari government statement said.

However, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash told the BBC on Monday the Post's report was "untrue".

However, the officials are unclear whether the UAE carried out the hacks itself or contracted to have them done.

The false reports, which first appeared on 24 May, said the emir, among other things, had called Iran an "Islamic power" and praised Hamas.

Gargash said there was a broader problem with financing for extremists in the Gulf but that countries like Saudi Arabia were "dealing with it".

"We are after a change of behaviour", Gargash said. Similar statements were seen on the twitter feed of the news agency.

But Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt all blocked Qatari media and later severed diplomatic ties and imposed sanctions on Doha. The comments sparked a series of events that led to the region's diplomatic crisis.

"The UAE had no role whatsoever in the alleged hacking described in the article", said the UAE's ambassador to the USA in a statement.
