Saudi Arabia demands Qatar close Al Jazeera, sever ties with Iran

Saudi Arabia demands Qatar close Al Jazeera, sever ties with Iran

The Arab states that have cut ties with Qatar have given the Gulf nation 10 days to comply with a series of demands, including the closure of the Al Jazeera satellite television channel.

The four countries are Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt and Bahrain.

The Iran provisions in the document say Qatar must shut down diplomatic posts in Iran, expel any members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, and only conduct trade and commerce with Iran that complies with U.S. sanctions.

Doha has since rejected accusations it supports terrorism, calling them "unjustified" and "baseless". Most recently, The Associated Press reports, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had been frustrated at perceived delays in formulating the list of demands - but the wire service notes the U.S. official also warned the demands should be "reasonable and actionable".

"Re-evaluating the base agreement with Qatar is not on our agenda", Fikri Isik said speaking in a interview with NTV news broadcaster.

- Halt the development of a Turkish military base in the country.

If Qatar agreed to the conditions its compliance would be closely monitored for 10 years.

The Saudi regime and its allies also require Qatar to cut all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and other groups, including al-Qaeda and Daesh.

Saudi Arabia has also banned Qatar Airways from operating in the country, with Saudi Arabia's aviation authority withdrawing Qatar's licence to land and fly in the country.

Quoting sources, Al-Jazeera reported that a list had been delivered to Qatar, but the broadcaster did not elaborate on its contents.

But Al Jazeera is, because it provides a view of the outside world to ordinary Saudi citizens that's not controlled by the Ministry of Keeping Everyone In Line.

Wanted individuals residing in Qatar must be returned to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt.
