‘West hurts own values in Gulf crisis’

Western nations jeopardised their own values during the ongoing crisis in the Gulf region, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said on Saturday. He was speaking at the 18th edition of the Doha Forum, a dialogue platform attended by leading global players.To a question whether Western nations had been helpful after Saudi Arabia and its allies imposed a blockade on Qatar last year, Mr. al-Thani said Qatar had not seen much movement from the West during the crisis. “We are still relying on our region,” he said, reflecting a sense of disappointment with the West on how it had dealt with the crisis. Appreciating the role played by the Emir of Kuwait, he hoped that engagement with the region would repair relations.
