Qatar Emir's absence is 'arrogance'
The no-show of the Emir of Qatar at the 29th Arab summit held in Dhahran on Sunday is an obvious sign of arrogance, a UAE senior official has said."The absence of the Emir of Qatar from the Dhahran Summit is a natural and deplorable result of the policy of arrogance adopted by Doha since the start of its crisis," UAE State Minister for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash posted on his twitter account, reports gulfnews.com.
"The lack of wisdom and subsequent isolation and marginalization continue and they cannot be compensated by media and public relations companies or by bought loyalty," he said referring expensive charm offensives mounted by international companies to promote Qatar's views worldwide, but with no effect on the crisis.
The Qatari delegation was headed by Doha's permanent representative to the Arab League, Saif bin Muqaddam Al Buainain. The official news agency didn't provide details about the absence of the Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani.
