The foreign Minister of Qatar Mohammed bin Abdurrahman al-Thani said that Doha does not accept the creation of any foreign monitoring mechanisms in respect of itself, as this would violate the country’s sovereignty.

Earlier, the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates for foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash called on the West to the establishment of a monitoring mechanism that would monitor the implementation of Qatar’s commitment to refrain from financing terrorism.

«We participate in a constructive dialogue, but based on a solid and rational basis. We can’t afford some of the requirements that someone just wants us to do,» — said in this regard, al-Thani told reporters.

According to him, Doha does not accept the idea that Qatar «must be controlled by a foreign monitoring mechanism».

«We are not under the custody of any country, we are a sovereign and independent state. We cannot impose something from another country. We are an active part of the international community. We are a country that respects international law,» said the Qatari Minister.

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on 5 June severed diplomatic relations with Doha and stopped with Qatar every message, accusing him of supporting terrorism and interference in their internal Affairs. Later on the rupture of diplomatic relations also said the Maldives, Mauritius, Mauritania. Jordan and Djibouti have reduced the level of its diplomatic missions in Qatar. Senegal, Niger and Chad announced the withdrawal of ambassadors.
