Qatar Completely Rejects Normalizing Ties with Israel

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Qatar completely rejected normalizing ties with Israel after the UAE and Bahrain did so, stressing that this is not the core of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle. Speaking to Bloomberg on Monday, spokesperson for Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lolwah Rashid Al-Khater said, “We don’t think that normalization was the core of this conflict and hence it can’t be the answer.” She added, “The core of this conflict is about the drastic conditions that the Palestinians are living under” as “people without a country, living under occupation.” Meanwhile, she pointed to progress towards a solution to the crisis with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE who imposed a stifling blockade on their Persian Gulf neighbor in June 2017
