Qatar foreign minister denounces 'unfair', 'illegal' sanctions

Last Thursday, Guterres urged countries in the region "to avoid escalating tensions and work instead to overcome their differences", United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. Saudi Arabia is not a signatory.

The severing of air, sea and land transport links has closed off key import routes for Qatar and its population of around 2.7 million people.

A senior counter-terrorism adviser to Qatar's foreign minister has hit out at the diplomatic squeeze on Doha by several Gulf states, calling it a "policy of domination and control".

"Qatar is willing to sit and negotiate about whatever is related to Gulf security", he added.

In April, Qatar Petroleum's President and CEO Saad Sherida al-Kaabi told The Associated Press that Qatar and Iran "have an excellent political relationship" as well as an "excellent technical relationship".

Pakistani ambassadors in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz attended the conference on Monday. Al Thani has visited multiple European countries in recent days seeking diplomatic support.

Pakistan has close ties with the kingdom but also business ventures in Qatar.

UAE's foreign minister Anwar Gargash took to Twitter on Monday to claim Qatar had sought to "internationalise the crisis with its brothers".

Sharif's office issued a statement on Tuesday, following his return from Saudi Arabia. Qatar Airways was forced to cancel direct flights to those countries, which serve as a significant source of passenger traffic for the airline.

Kuwait has tried to mediate in the crisis between Qatar and other Arab nations over Doha's alleged support of Islamists and its ties to Iran.

The diplomatic crisis, the worst since the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iraq and the subsequent Gulf War, has seen Arab nations and others cut ties to Qatar, which hosts a major US military base and will be the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The government said the Gulf region is very important for world trade, especially energy, as well as regional peace and stability. Qatar has denied the allegations.

Qatar shares control of a vast underwater gas field with Iran, which lies on the other side of the Persian Gulf. Qatar has begun shipping cargo through Oman to bypass the blockade and show it can survive the diplomatic row with its neighbours.

Qatar's port authority published video showing a container ship loaded down with cargo arriving at Doha's Hamad Port from Oman's port of Sohar to a water-cannon welcome.

Typically, cargo for Qatar stops at Dubai's massive deep-water Jebel Ali port, then gets put on smaller boats heading to Doha.

Russia's state-run Tass news agency says the two discussed "the growing tensions around Qatar".
