AFP , Monday 19 Jun 2017

Qatar's diplomatic isolation could "last years", a United Arab Emirates minister said Monday, accusing the Gulf state of "supporting jihadists".

"We do not want to escalate, we want to isolate," state minister for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash told journalists during a visit to Paris, adding that Qatar must abandon its support for "extremist Islamists" before a solution can be brokered.
