Saudi Bloc Once Again Demand More from Qatar

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the UAE have demanded that Qatar address its 13 demands and then the bloc would be “ready for dialogue.”

The demands included the closure of the news giant Al-Jazeera and reducing ties with Iran, who is the number one rival of Saudi Arabia. Qatar’s lawyers have called the move by the bloc “reminiscent of the extreme and punitive conduct of ‘bully’ states that have historically resulted in war.”

The U.S. needs to take a firm stance on behalf of the Qatari kingdom which is home to an American military base and is a strategic partner in the Middle East.
