Siege countries scale back demands



United Nations 

Agencies

S

audi Arabia, the United 



Arab Emirates, Bahrain 

and Egypt cut back their 

demands for Qatar by 

half, also allowing the 

country to meet the requests 

without specific deadlines, media 

reported yesterday.

According to The Wall Street 



Journal newspaper, the new list 

includes six demands instead of 

13. The list also does not impose 

any deadlines for Doha, the media 

added Saudi Arabia, the United 

Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain 

broke diplomatic relations with 

Qatar in early June largely over 

their allegations that it supports 

terrorist and extremist groups — 

a charge Qatar rejects. They 

initially made 13 demands, which 

Qatar also dismissed.

Saudi Arabia’s UN Ambas-

sador Abdallah Al Mouallimi 

told a briefing for a group of UN 

correspondents yesterday that 

the four nations are now com-

mitted to the six principles 

agreed to by their foreign min-

isters at a meeting in Cairo on 

July 5, and hope Qatar will sup-

port them as well.

The principles include com-

mitments to combat extremism 

and terrorism, prevent financ-

ing and safe havens for such 

groups, and suspend all acts of 

provocation and speeches incit-

ing hatred or violence.

Al Mouallimi said the four-

nation quartet thinks it “should 

be easy for the Qataris to accept” 

the six principles. He stressed 

that implementation and mon-

itoring must be “essential 

components,” and “there will be 

no compromise when it comes 

to principles.”

But he said both sides can talk 

about details of “the tactics” and 

“the tools” to implement them — 

“and that’s where we can have 

discussion and compromise.”

The Saudi ambassador 

explained that the initial 13 points 

included some principles and some 

tools to achieve compliance. He 

said closing Al Jazeera might not be 

necessary.  “If the only way to 

achieve that is by closing down Al 

Jazeera, fine,” he said. “If we can 

achieve that without closing down 

Al Jazeera, that’s also fine. The 

important thing is the objective 

and the principle involved.”

Meanwhile, the US State 

Department emphasised Doha 

“maintained a strong partner-

ship in the fight against 

terrorism in 2016 and collabo-

rated to foster closer regional 

and international cooperation 

on counterterrorism, law 

enforcement and rule of law 

activities“.

T

he head of Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) says 



his efforts to ease the humanitarian impact of the blockade on Qatari 

and other citizens has been rebuffed by human-rights groups in neigh-

bouring Arab Gulf states.

H E Ali bin Sumaikh Al Marri, the NHRC chairman, disclosed in Doha 

yesterday that he had sent letters to his counterparts in Saudi Arabia, 

UAE and Bahrain asking them to appeal to their governments to spare 

Gulf citizens the humanitarian, social and economic consequences of 

the dispute. “We either got no response or have been attacked by our 

colleagues working on human-rights issues in the blockading nations,” 

he said. He said the human-rights sections in the Arab League, the Organ-

isation of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab Parliament and the Gulf 

Cooperation Council (GCC) have ignored his plea.

Official questions 

disorganised 

conduct by 

siege countries

DIRECTOR of Qatar’s Gov-

ernment Communications 

Office, says Arab countries 

that have moved to isolate 

Qatar have acted dangerously 

and in a “disorganised man-

ner” after apparently 

changing their demands.

H E Sheikh Saif Al Thani 

said yesterday the new 

demands are “another exam-

ple of the dangerous and 

disorganised manner in 

which the illegal blockade has 

been conducted.”

In response to questions 

from The Associated Press, 

he said the four countries 

have regularly issued “con-

flicting statements and 

arguments.”

The Peninsula 

Q

atar Chamber has recently published 



an online questionnaire via its web-

site to assess all damages and losses 

to Qatari companies caused by the block-

ade imposed on Qatar by siege countries, 

said the Chamber yesterday. The step 

mainly aims to identify the extent of 

damages to Qatari companies in order 

to address the Compensation Claims 

Committee (CCC) recently launched to 

tackle loss claims made by government 

bodies, authorities, ministries, private 

companies, public institutions and indi-

viduals. Saif bin Yousef Al Kuwari, Head 

of Committees & Business Councils 

Department at the Chamber and Head 

of the Economic Committee for identi-

fying damages caused by the boycott said 

that the Chamber is very interested to 

collect accurate and true information on 

the extent of actual damages to Qatari 

companies due to the unfair blockade.

The questionnaire aims at pinpoint 

the actual volume of transactions and 

damages in order to take the appropri-

ate legal measures according to accurate 

and documented information, he noted.

“We have launched an online ques-

tionnaire via the Chamber’s website 

through the link http://qatarchamber.

com/?lang=en,” he added.

Al Kuwari called upon owners and 

officials of Qatari companies to fill out 

the questionnaire and to provide accu-

rate and correct information.

He stated that companies affected by 

the siege must attach all required docu-

ments which will be submitted later to 

the Compensation Claims Committee, 

assuring that claims unsupported by doc-

uments will be dismissed.

Al Kuwari praised directives of QC’s 

Chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al 

Thani attempting to identify all damages 

to local companies due to the unfair siege 

and addressing all results to the Com-

pensation Committee.

The questionnaire should be com-

pleted for each activity separately. The 

actual damage (not the expected) shall 

be mentioned during the period from 

June 5, 2017 until the date of filling out 

the questionnaire, Al Kuwari pointed 

out.

Washington 

QNA

FAKE news designed to harm Qatar’s relations 

with the US played a major role in the diplomatic 

split between the tiny Gulf nation and its neigh-

bors, say both US officials and the Qatari 

government according to an NBC News report.

A US intelligence official said that the 

quotes attributed to the Emir H H Sheikh 

Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani were phony and 

part of a campaign to hurt Qatar. 

Several officials confirmed the report in 

the Washington Post that someone work-

ing for the United Arab Emirates government 

hacked into Qatari news sites and social 

media on May 24 to plant the false com-

ments attributed to the Emir. The intelligence 

official said the operatives who carried out 

the hack may have been private contrac-

tors, but US authorities sees the UAE as 

ultimately responsible.

T

he siege imposed on Qatar has jeopardised the Gulf’s hard-won 



position as a haven of business stability within the restive Middle 

East, a Financial Times report said on Wednesday.

The private sector has been left reeling by the move from the siege 

that broke business ties, dealt a blow to cross-border investments, and 

caused uncertainty and confusion and pushed up costs.

The regional trans-shipment hub of Jebel Ali has barred Qatar-bound 

vessels until further notice. UAE authorities have also notified freight-

forwarders not to handle any cargo destined for Qatar, including shipments 

via a third country, the report said. UAE officials have threatened further 

restrictions against businesses that carry on doing business with Qatar.

Multinationals operating out of the regional business hub of Dubai 

are already having to decide whether their Qatar business is lucrative 

enough to risk censure in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt.

“The crisis has encouraged companies to think about restructuring to 

keep UAE and Qatar operations separate,” says one diplomat. Others are 

pre-empting any call to sever ties with Qatar by turning down new busi-

ness there. Some are shifting responsibility for servicing Qatari clients 

from Dubai to offices in Europe.

Financial Times: Blockade jeopardises 

Gulf’s position as business haven

QATAR’S Ambassador to the 

UN H E Sheikha Alia Ahmed 

bin Saif Al Thani said that the 

four Arab states scaled back 

their demands not as a sign 

of good faith, but in attempt 

to save their image amid 

international pressure over 

the initial list of demands.

of the Pakistani primary 

trainer aircraft (Super Mushshak) 

in Doha. 

On this occasion, Qatar Armed 

Forces held a launch event in Al 

Zaeem Mohammed Bin Abdullah 

Al Atiyyah Air College under the 

patronage of  Chief of Staff H E 

Major General (Pilot) Ghanim bin 

Shaheen Al Ghanim, Major-Gen-

eral (Pilot) Ahmed bin Ibrahim Al 

Malki, Deputy Commander of the 

Emiri Air Force and a high-level del-

egation from the Islamic Republic 

of Pakistan which included Offic-

ers from the Pakistan Air Force, 

several members of the embassy 

and the Pakistani military attache. 

During the event, they 

reviewed the college’s training 

stages and its future plans. 

Brigadier (Pilot) Salem 

Hamad Aqeel Al Nabit, Com-

mander of Al Zaeem Mohammed 

Bin Abdullah Al Atiyyah Air Col-

lege, expressed his pride with the 

launch event for the arrival of the 

first batch of Super Mushshak 

which is considered a unique and 

quality addition to the training 

aircraft fleet in the college. 

He added the development 

plans pursued by the college are 

proceeding according to plan in 

line with the development in all 

sectors of the other armed forces 

sectors.  Al Nabit said the col-

lege’s development wouldn’t 

have happened if it weren’t for 

the direct support it receives 

from the Emir H H Sheikh Tamim 

bin Hamad Al Thani, the Minis-

ter of State for Defence Affairs H 

E Dr Khalid bin Mohammed Al 

Attiyah and Chief of Staff H E 

Major General (Pilot) Ghanim bin

The Pakistani Super Mushshak 

aircrafts will provide training sup-

port to the pilot candidates of the 

college as these turbofan engine 

aircrafts are used in primary and 

fundamental military air training, 

in addition to parades and night 

flying. The MFI-17 Mushshak is 

produced by Pakistan Aeronau-

tical Complex and consists of two 

or three seats, with a wingspan 

of 8.85 meters, length 7.15 meters 

and a maximum speed of 268 

kilometers per hour. 

After exchanging souvenirs 

between both sides, the delega-

college, training rooms, simula-

tion systems and airfields.

The aircrafts which are used for 

vertical training will improve the 

college’s pilot candidates training 

and will substitute the Gazelle air-

crafts used currently. The purchase 

agreement was signed in June 2016.

HMC performs 



advanced 

spinal surgery



The Peninsula

team of surgeons from 



Hamad Medical Corpo-

ration (HMC) has 

performed an advanced proce-

dure for the first time in Qatar 

to correct the abnormal 

spinal curvature of a nine-year-

old boy. 

The young patient suffers 

from severe scoliosis, a condi-

tion where the spine twists and 

curves to the side. Caused by a 

genetic condition, scoliosis 

gradually weakens the muscles 

around the spine.

The surgical team was led 

by Dr Abdulaziz Al Kuwari, 

Consultant, Orthopedic Surgery, 

and included Dr Alaa Zakout, 

Associate Consultant, Dr Omar 

Al Noori and Dr Nasser Khan, 

both Spine fellows. The team 

inserted state-of-the-art 

MAGEC growing rods along the 

child’s spine to correct the 

abnormal alignment. 

“The MAGEC rods provide 

a highly advanced treatment 

technology for correcting spi-

nal deformities in paediatric 

patients. The key benefit of 

using the MAGEC rods, rather 

than traditional growing rods, 

is that we can extend the length 

of the rods when required via 

remote control in a straightfor-

ward, pain-free process, 

without the need for further 

surgical procedures,” said Dr Al 

Kuwari. 

“Prior to this recent proce-

dure, standard treatment plans 

would have involved inserting 

two small rods along the 

patient’s spine and numerous 

subsequent surgical procedures 

every six months to manually 

extend the rods to correct the 

spinal curvature. The introduc-

tion of MAGEC rods now 

eliminates the need for follow-

up surgeries,” he added.

The surgical procedure was 

performed in Hamad Medical 

Corporation’s new surgical 

services facility at Hamad Gen-

eral Hospital. 

Opened in 2016, the facil-

ity has significantly expanded 

HMC’s surgical services capac-

ity and provides a bespoke 

complex in which expert sur-

gical teams can treat patients 

using the most technologically 

advanced equipment. 

One such technology used 

in the scoliosis surgical proce-

dure was an advanced spinal 

navigation system available 

only in the new surgical 

facility. 

“The navigation system 

enables our surgeons to track 

the location of surgical instru-

ments throughout a procedure 

more precisely than ever 

before. The system provides 

highly-advanced images of the 

areas surrounding the spine 

and offers a very detailed view 

of the nerves and tissues in 

relation to the instruments. The 

result of the navigation system 

is a safer and more precise sur-

gical procedure,” said Dr Al 

Kuwari. 

Siege will not stop development plans: Al Nabit

QNA

M

inister of Develop-



ment Planning 

and Statistics H E 

Dr Saleh bin 

Mohammad Al 

Nabit (pictured) said the unilat-

eral measures of imposing illegal 

land, sea and air siege on Qatar 

will not deviate it from achiev-

ing sustainable development, 

prosperity and growth. 

Speaking at the meeting of the 

2017 high-level political forum on 

sustainable development at the 

United Nations (UN) headquar-

ters in New York, the Minister said 

after the contrived crisis, Qatar is 

addressing this siege with the 

power of truth, logic and means 

of transparency, along with the 

support of its friends in the region 

and the world.

The Minister stressed Qatar’s 

commitment to the UN charter 

and relevant international con-

ventions in every step it takes, 

reiterating that nothing would 

deviate it from the path it chose 

and set for itself in Qatar National 

Vision 2030, represented in 

a c h i e v i n g   s u s t a i n a b l e 

development and high levels of 

well being to its residents. 

The Minister referred to the 

international indicators and com-

parisons that reflect Qatar’s 

continuous and steady progress 

in all the different economic 

development indicators as well 

as the social, human, safety indi-

cators and peace in the world. 

Qatar continues to meet its 

moral, ethical and religious com-

mitments with regards to helping 

populations in need through 

spreading education and employ-

ment around the world and its 

response for humanitarian emer-

gencies that populations face, he 

added. Such effort represents an 

authentic component of Qatar’s 

culture, morals and ethics that it 

has followed for years, and it 

reflects its commitment to effec-

tively contribute to international 

development, the Minister said. 

Qatar will host the high-level 

meeting of Economical and Social 

(ECOSOC) Forum on Financing 

for Development follow-up for 

2018 in November, reflecting 

Qatar’s belief in the importance 

of international development 

cooperation and the participatory 

responsibility for sustainable 

development, he said, adding it 

also falls in line with Qatar’s com-

mitment to meet the challenges 

of development financing in a 

spirit of global partnership and 

solidarity. 

Aspiring to achieve sustaina-

ble and inclusive development is 

met with many obstacles such as 

eradicating poverty which 

remains a top priority and a pre-

requisite to achieve sustainable 

development, he added. 

In this context, the Minister 

reiterated that achieving inclu-

sive and sustainable economic, 

social and environmental devel-

opment also requires mobilising 

the necessary means, strength-

ening the effective global 

cooperation and participation, 

including all of the society’s indi-

viduals and specifically 

concentrating on meeting the 

needs of the poorest and most 

marginalised groups, especially 

women, children, people with 

disabilities and the elderly.

The Minister said Qatar’s pol-

icy depends on correlating its 

national policy with the global 

directives related to development 

saying, Qatar is keen on ensuring 

that the Sustainable Development 

Plan becomes an integral part of 

the Second National Develop-

ment Strategy (2017-2022). 

The Minister praised the 

Qatar National Vision 2030 which 

identifies main economic, social, 

human and environmental goals, 

including eight sectoral strategies 

for development in line with the 

2030 Sustainable Development 

Plan. He presented the achieve-

ments of Qatar in different fields 

including social security, health, 

education, infrastructure, energy, 

environmental protection, global 

partnership and cooperation and 

the developmental and human-

itarian aids. 

The Minister reiterated Qatar’s 

keenness for its development 

approach to be based on human 

rights, as it hosts residents of all 

nationalities who enjoy all the 

basic rights in accordance with the 

constitution, and participate in the 

process of development and 

growth of the State.

The Minister referred to the 

preventive approach adopted by 

Qatar to create conditions 

enhancing the concepts of coex-

istence and the renunciation of 

violence and extremism, noting 

Qatar’s hosting to annual dialogue 

conferences between different 

cultures. Qatar takes measures 

within legislative and institutional 

frameworks necessary to pro-

mote the culture of peace. 

The Minister said Qatar con-

centrates on eradicating 

corruption, its causes and motives, 

as it hosted in 2015 the 13th United 

Nations Congress on Crime Pre-

vention and Criminal Justice in 

partnership with United Nations 

Office on Drugs and Crime. Qatar 

also launched transparency and 

control institutions such as the 

Administrative Control and Trans-

parency Authority. 

The Minister concluded that 

Qatar will continue to work on 

playing an important and active 

role in the global partnership for 

development and to achieve 

development that balances eco-

nomic, social and environmental 

dimensions. 

Qatar is addressing this siege with the power of 

truth, logic and means of transparency, along 

with the support of its friends in the region 

and the world, said Minister of Development 

Planning and Statistics H E Dr Saleh bin 

Mohammad Al Nabit at the high-level political 

forum on sustainable development at the UN 

headquarters in New York.

Qatar Airways Group Chief 

Executive Akbar Al Baker said: 

“In celebration of going to Mos-

cow together for 14 years, and as 

part of Qatar Airways’ ongoing 

efforts to expand our presence 

in Eastern Europe, we are very 

pleased to offer an additional 

frequency to this iconic city. Pas-

sengers from the Russian capital

delights of the Russian capital, 

as well as experience our 

r e n o w n e d   w o r l d - c l a s s 

service.”

The airline first began flying 

to the Russian capital in 2003. 

The launch of the additional fre-

quency to Moscow comes at a 

time when Qatar Airways is 

expediting its expansion plans in 

Eastern Europe, with service to 

Skopje, Republic of Macedonia; 

and Prague, Czech Republic  set 

to commence by the end of 

August. 

The additional frequency will 

be served by an Airbus A320 air-

craft, featuring 12 seats in

Hamad Port breaks siege by 

opening global direct lines

QNA

T

he Hamad Port, which is 



Qatar’s main gateway for 

trade with the world, has 

succeeded in breaking the unjust 

siege imposed on Qatar since 

June 5 with the opening of five 

new shipping lines, under the 

direction of the Ministry of 

Transport and Communications 

and in cooperation with a 

number of Hamad Port partners 

such as the Mediterranean Ship-

ping Company (MSC), Maersk 

Company and Qatar Navigation 

Company “Milaha”. said Captain 

Abdul Aziz al Yafei, Director of 

Hamad Port.

In a statement to QNA, Al 

Yafei said that Hamad Port’s new 

lines connect directly to several 

ports in the region and beyond 

such as Sohar and Salalah in the 

Sultanate of Oman and the ports 

of Mundra and Nhava Sheva 

Ports in India and the port of 

Izmir in Turkey and other ports 

served by these international 

companies from all over the 

world. Al Yafei pointed out that 

the Qatar Ports Management 

Company (MWANI Qatar) 

received in the first half of this 

year up to 470,000 tonnes of 

general cargo and about 407,000 

heads of livestock, in addition to 

449,000 tonnes of Gabbro and 

building materials.

Al Yafei added that the 

MWANI Qatar is currently work-

ing to expand the direct maritime 

lines and connect Hamad Port to 

other ports around the world, 

which will contribute to the pro-

vision of stocks of materials and 

commodities, especially after the 

New Port Project (NPP) Steering 

Committee signed a contract for 

designing and constructing food 

security facilities and ware-

houses at Hamad Port at a cost 

of QR 1.6bn. Phase I of the project 

will be completed after 26 

months and consists of special-

ised facilities for the processing, 

manufacturing, and refining of 

rice, raw sugar, and edible oils. 

These products will be available 

for local, regional and global use 

and will provide food for three 

million people over two and a 

half years.

MWANI Qatar, as the oper-

ator of Hamad Port, is working 

on a strategic plan to provide a 

stable supply chain platform for 

the local market and the Qatari 

economy over the long term, Al 

Yafei said.

In order to ensure that the 

growing needs of the local mar-

ket are met on the one hand, and 

to strengthen status of Hamad 

Port as a vital commercial cen-

tre in the region on the other 

hand, the company seeks to build 

strong partnerships with all 

shipping companies around the 

world, especially as Hamad Port 

currently accounts for 20 per-

cent of the trade in the Middle 

East. Al Yafei pointed out that the 

Hamad Port receives all kinds of 

commercial vessels such as con-

tainer ships, car ships, grain and 

steel carriers and rolling ships, 

including livestock vessels in 

addition to general cargo ships 

of all kinds.

It is worth mentioning that 

Hamad Port was officially 

opened in December 2016. It is 

the vital nerve of Qatar’s trade 

with the world, the largest of its 

kind in the Middle East, and has 

the capacity to accommodate the 

largest vessels of all types and 

vessels of various sizes and 

weights. The port consists of sev-

eral terminals with a different 

capacity, including a general 

cargo and a grain terminal, a car 

receiving station, a cattle station, 

a coastal security ship station and 

a marine support and support 

station.
