The situation around Qatar again after the end of Ramadan escalates, we can not exclude even a power variant of development of events, suggested by the orientalist, Advisor to the Director of the Russian Institute of strategic studies Elena Suponina.

Foreign Minister of Bahrain Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa on Monday threatened to Qatar «emergency regional intervention,» if Doha does not want to follow the agreements with the countries of the region.

«The statement of the foreign Minister of Bahrain followed soon after Qatar rejected the charges against him an ultimatum. Despite the relative success of the mediation of Kuwait, the situation in Qatar again after the end of Ramadan escalates. It is impossible to exclude even a power variant of development of events. However, there is still a chance to avoid this worst-case scenario with intermediaries who can encourage the parties to the dialogue. Otherwise, the impact of such threats that has heard from the leaders of Gulf countries, can be extremely dangerous. Any forceful intervention can cause unpredictable results,» said Suponina RIA Novosti.

According to her, if you want to stop such a scenario could be Americans, although they clearly incite the parties to the conflict.

«We must not forget that, under political and even military protection, Qatar has taken Turkey, certainly in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain don’t forget,» she added.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE and Bahrain through the mediation of Kuwait earlier handed over to the authorities of Qatar a list of its requirements to the termination of diplomatic isolation faced by the Emirate. List details requirements revealed a number of media.

Four Arab countries require Qatar to sever diplomatic relations with Iran, close the military base of Turkey on its territory and the satellite channel «al Jazeera». To perform all of the requirements of Doha is given 10 days. Qatar has called the demands unrealistic and called for a review of them.
