Qatar is ´undermining´ GCC allies: UAE minister

Saudi Arabia along with the UAE Bahrain and Egypt imposed a boycott on Qatar since June 5

But Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt all blocked Qatari media and later severed diplomatic ties and imposed sanctions on Doha. The Maldives, Mauritius, and Mauritania followed suite, while Jordan and Djibouti reduced the level of their diplomatic missions in Qatar.

On July 5, the four Arab states confirmed Doha's refusal to comply with their demands and expressed regret over such a position.

Gargash said there was a broader problem with financing for extremists in the Gulf but that countries like Saudi Arabia were "dealing with it". But it has denied aiding jihadist groups linked to al-Qaeda or so-called Islamic State (IS).

Gargash hailed Qatar's decision last week to sign a memorandum of understanding on terrorist financing with the USA as "a positive development" by the foreign minister. As per a Sunday report by The Washington Post UAE arranged the hacking of Qatari government news site. Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Qadafi. "The Washington Post story today that we actually hacked the Qataris is also not true", he told the London-based think-tank Chatham House.

An anti-Qatar alliance threatened Doha's place in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) on Monday, suggesting it could lose its post if it "undermined regional security".

Trump visits Paris, with or without his friend Jim
At a later press conference , Mr Trump offered a new defence of his son over his controversial meeting with a Russian operative. Nevertheless, she wouldn't be offering commentary on Mr Trump's conversations with the French president or his wife.

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

Intelligence officials said their working theory since the Qatar hacks has been that Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt or some combination of those countries were involved. "Inciting violence, encouraging radicalization, and undermining the stability of its neighbors", the statement said. Qatar has denied the accusations.

"What we really do want is we either reach an agreement and Qatar´s behaviour changes, or Qatar makes it own bed and they can move on and we can move with a new relationship".

It described the alleged hacking as a violation of global law and of agreements between the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) - the regional trade and security group - as well as collective agreements with the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the United Nations.
