Qatar crisis will not end soon: UAE official

French Foreign Minister visits National Museum of Qatar

French Foreign Minister visits National Museum of Qatar

France has called for sanctions affecting Qatari nationals to be swiftly lifted to ease the rumbling row between the Gulf country and its neighbours.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz and French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian, in a bilateral meeting, agreed to take collective efforts to counter terrorism and extremism and stop terror financing, reports Al- Arabia.

Saudi Ambassador to Khartoum Ali bin Hassan Jaafar earlier this month urged Sudan to take "clear stance" on the ongoing Gulf crisis, accusing Qatar of seeking the backing of two states with regional ambitions, Turkey and Iran.

Lahiru Kumara, Asela Gunaratne and Dilruwan Perera took a wicket each. The duo put together 26 runs to try and steady Zimbabwe . He swept Herath for a single to achieve the feat.

Jubeir said he has assured the French foreign minister of the kingdom's "refusal to finance and support terrorism", also stating that they will provide France with a full file of the abuses committed by Qatar.

The defiant Doha government, however, strongly refused to comply, calling the wide-ranging demands "unrealistic, unreasonable and unacceptable".

Le Drian, who has already met with Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, also said Paris "is very concerned by the sudden deterioration in relations between Qatar and many of its neighbors".

When it was her turn to serve, Kim asked the audience what kind of serve she should make - wide or down the middle. He got a huge hug from Clijsters and a photo with the entire group that he'll surely cherish for a long, long time.

"Combatting terrorism also can not be through practising political and intellectual terrorism against a state", Sheikh Mohammed said, in reference to measures taken against Doha by its neighbours.

Le Drian is to travel on to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE, following a four-day mediation mission by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that ended on Thursday without any announcement of progress towards defusing mounting tensions in the Gulf.

"We hope to cooperate with Saudi Arabia in implementing Saudi Vision", he added, after talks with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir.
