Qatar reveals intentions to continue its policies in the province until 2022

In statements reflecting Qatar's insistence on continuing its policies that led to the boycott of Arab and Gulf states, Hassan Al-Thawadi, secretary general of the Supreme Committee for Projects and Heritage, Qatar 2022, called upon the boycott countries to allow their citizens to attend the event, First.

This confirms that the political leadership in Qatar expects the boycott to continue in the coming years, by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE and Egypt.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar last June, accusing them of supporting terrorism and being very close to Iran and radical Islamic groups.

Since then, these countries have imposed an economic blockade on Doha, and the crisis has reached a dead end despite attempts to mediate, especially by the United States and Kuwait.

Qatar expects to have 1.5 million fans, mostly from the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia, who last week decided not to participate in the Gulf Cup, due to be hosted by Qatar, due to the strained relations with Doha.

Gulf Cup "Gulf 23" is subject to postponement unless the international suspension of Kuwait is lifted within two weeks, with the Gulf Union announcing on Thursday that the boycotting countries of the host country Qatar have been officially withdrawn from the tournament.

The Doha-based Gulf Union gave the three countries until 13 November 2018 to determine their position, and in September 2017 boycotted the draw. However, the deadline expired without receiving any response, knowing that the tournament regulations require five teams to be held, which would be impossible in the absence of Kuwait.

Four countries have so far confirmed their participation - Qatar, Oman, Iraq and Yemen.
