Saudi Arabia hopes Qatar will give a positive response to a list of demands and find a solution to the current diplomatic crisis.
This was stated by Saudi Minister of foreign affairs Adel al-Jubeir, along with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel, in Jeddah.
They hope for Qatar to positively respond to the diplomatic standoff, which has seen other Arab countries accusing the gulf oil-rich state of supporting and financing “terrorism” as well as interfering in their internal affairs.
Al-Jubeir stressed that most of the demands in the list were already included in the list of requests agreed in the 2014 Riyadh agreements.
He announced that Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt agreed to a 48-hour extension to the deadline of Qatar’s response which had been due to expire on Sunday night.
He added that the announcement followed the request of their mediator, Kuwait, which did not cut ties with Qatar.
The four countries will hold a conference of foreign ministers on July 5th to carefully study Qatar’s responses and map out their own course of action.
