Qatar's praise for Iran turns Arab League summit into shouting match

Gulf crisis continues as false media reports surface

Hours later, the public prosecutor tweeted a section of the kingdom's terrorism law, which states: "Endangering national unity, obstructing the Basic Law of governance or some of its articles, and harming the state's reputation or status are terrorist crimes".

On Tuesday, Qatar's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Soltan bin Saad al-Muraikhi took the podium at the event in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, to denounce what he called a "vicious media campaign" against his country "waged by rabid dogs backed by some regimes".

The Arab countries allied with Saudi Arabia blame Doha for interfering in the domestic affairs of other states and sponsoring terrorism, an accusation Qatar has rejected as "groundless".

Muraikhi further angered Qatar's critics when he said that Iran is an "honorable country" and when he underlined the renewal of ties with the Islamic Republic.

In response, Qattan said: "Congratulations to Iran and soon, God willing, you will regret it". The phone call was initiated from Qatari side after US President Donald Trump had recently asked all the Gulf countries to enter into dialogue for resolving the crisis.

They cited Doha's longstanding support for the Muslim Brotherhood, blacklisted by the four Arab governments as a terrorist group, although not by Western governments or the United Nations.

"Personally I will not buy products from the boycott countries again", he said, pointing out that the products imported from Kuwait, Oman and Turkey are preferred due to their quality and competitive prices.

He added that in "the coming days will prove them wrong because we know that the Qatari people will never accept the Iranians to play a role in Qatar".

During the speech delivered by the Qatari delegate to the AL, Shoukry interrupted him and described the Qatari speech of being "nonsense and inappropriate words".

Israel's neighbors in the Middle East continue to sling mud at one another in their quarrel over Qatar.

Doha's decision to resume diplomatic ties with Tehran comes amid a diplomatic rift between Qatar and several Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain.

They say Qatar supports regional foe Iran and Islamists. They later issued a tough 13-point list of demands needed to resolve the crisis, including shutting down news outlets including Al-Jazeera, limiting ties with Iran and expelling Turkish troops stationed in the country.
