UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs: NYT report proves Doha’s ties to terrorism


Anwar Gargash, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said on Tuesday that a recent New York Times report proves Qatar’s ties to terrorism.

Earlier yesterday morning, the New York Times said they obtained an audio recording “of a mobile phone conversation between the Qatari ambassador to Somalia and a businessman close to the emir of Qatar” about a terrorist attack in Bosaso in the north of Somalia.

In the conversation, the businessman, named Khalifa Kayed Al-Muhanadi, said he knew who was behind the attack, and that it was carried out to “advance Qatar’s interests by driving out its rival, the United Arab Emirates.”

Gargash said the report “proves Doha’s ties to terrorism,” in a Tweet on Tuesday.

He said: “The recording is dangerous and can’t be denied without an investigation. The accusation of resorting to terrorism against the UAE is regrettable and justifies the four countries’ boycott of Qatar.”
