In a post in his Twitter account, senior Al Jazeera journalist Faisal Edroos published Saudi Arabia’s 10 demands from Qatar, which were put forward in the form of a 24-hour ultimatum to the Doha government on Tuesday night.
These conditions are Riyadh’s prerequisites for normalization of its relations with the fellow [P]GCC member state.
Saudis have reportedly given Qatar a 24-hour ultimatum to fulfil a number of conditions they set in response to efforts to mediate between the two Arab states.
In a meeting with Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who was in Jeddah on June 6 to mediate in an ongoing rift between Doha and a number of Persian Gulf Arab states, Qatar was given the one-day ultimatum to fulfil ten conditions set by the Al Saud regime.
According to Edroos, the demands are:
- Immediate severance of diplomatic relations with Iran,
- Expulsion of all members of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas from Qatar,
- Freezing all bank accounts of Hamas members and refraining from any deal with them,
- Expulsion of all Muslim Brotherhood members from Qatar,
- Expulsion of anti-[P]GCC elements,
- Ending support for ‘terrorist organisations’,
- Stopping interference in Egyptian affairs,
- Ceasing the broadcast of the Al Jazeera news channel,
- Apologising to all [Persian] Gulf governments for ‘abuses’ by Al Jazeera,
- Pledging that it (Qatar) will not carry out any actions that contradict the policies of the [P]GCC and adhering to its charter.
He added in case Qatar abides by the conditions laid out by Saudi Arabia, an emergency meeting of all [P]GCC leaders will be held in the Saudi city of Jeddah.
