Qatar says UN should play a role in resolving Gulf crisis
United Nations, BdChronicle:
Qatar's foreign minister called Thursday for the United Nations to help resolve the crisis in the Persian Gulf and accused the four Arab countries that have isolated his energy-rich nation of violating international law.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani told reporters that Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are showing "stubbornness" and have not taken any steps to solve the crisis.
He vowed that Qatar will spare no effort to overcome what he called "violations" of international law and said "the United Nations is the right platform to start from."
Al Thani spoke to reporters after discussing the crisis with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who has supported regional efforts led by Kuwait to resolve the dispute.
In Washington, where Al Thani met a day earlier with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the crisis appeared to be "at a standstill."
