         Tags: 18 Qataris on 'terror list' issued by Saudi
 

DOHA: As many as 59 individuals and 12 organisations - either Qatar based or funded by Qatar –are on a "terror list," a joint statement by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the UAE has said.

"This list is connected to Qatar and serves suspect agendas, in an indication of two-faced Qatari policies, which announce that they are fighting terrorism on one hand, while funding, supporting and sheltering various terrorist groups on the other," the statement read.

"These four states renew their commitment to their role in strengthening their efforts to combat all forms of terrorism and laying down the pillars of security and stability in the region," it added.

The 18 Qataris named on the list includes businessmen, politicians and senior members of the ruling family including a former interior minister.

Earlier, following a similar move by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain, Yemen also broke off its ties with Qatar for working with its enemies of the Iran-aligned Houthi militia, local media reports said.

The Yemen Government also extended its support to decision by a Saudi-led coalition fighting for more than two years to overthrow the Houthis from Sanaa.

"Qatar's practices of dealing with the (Houthi) coup militias and supporting extremist groups became clear," Al- Arabiya quoted the government as saying in a statement.

Meanwhile, Qatar's Foreign Ministry said that the country regrets the decision of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates' and Egypt to cut off diplomatic ties with it.

"The measures are unjustified and are based on claims and allegations that have no basis in fact," Al-Jazeera quoted the Qatar Foreign Ministry, as saying, in a statement.

The ministry added that the decision taken by the four Gulf nations would not affect the normal lives of its citizens and residents.

This comes after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain broke off their diplomatic ties and all land sea and air contacts with fellow Gulf Arab state Qatar over allegations that the latter is encouraging terrorism and extremism.

Riyadh has accused Qatar of backing terrorism and extremism, while Bahrain has charged Qatar with interfering in its internal affairs.

Saudi Arabia said the move was necessary to protect the kingdom from what it described as terrorism and extremism.

Bahrain's Foreign Affairs Ministry issued a statement that it would withdraw its diplomatic mission from Doha within 48 hours and that all Qatari diplomats should leave Bahrain within the same period.

The ministry's statement said Qatari citizens needed to leave Bahrain within two weeks and that air and sea traffic between the two countries would be halted. It wasn't immediately clear how that would affect Qatar Airways, one of the region's major long-haul carriers.

Egypt also announced the closure of its airspace and seaports for all Qatari transportation to protect its national security.
