Here’s what’s happened since last week’s updates.
The Arabic-language al-Akhbar daily wrote on Saturday that it has gained new documents indicating that UAE Ambassador to Masqat Mohammed Sultan Saif al-Suwaidi has warned the UAE government against Oman's support for Qatar despite its declaration of neutrality in imposition of sanctions against Doha, referring to a contract between Qatar and Oman to discover oil on Oman's coasts, reported Fars News.
Al-Suwaidi called on the UAE officials to make a move "to dissuade Oman from close relations with Qatar by intimidation or inducement".
However, according to The National, the UAE Embassy in Beirut has denied claims made by Lebanon's pro-Hezbollah Al Akhbar newspaper regarding an “Emirates Leaks” report that says Abu Dhabi is applying pressure on Muscat over the Qatar crisis.
The Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani went to the United Kingdom on Sunday (July 22) at the invitation of Prime Minister Theresa May.
However, the dirty politics still continues against Qatar as a pre-planned protest was arranged outside parliament on Tuesday. A crowd of around 100 took up positions opposite Big Ben in Westminster bearing placards with the slogan. People speculate that it may be related to blockading countries.
According to The Guardian, a casting agency advertised for paid extras to come and stand outside the gates of Downing Street when the Amir of Qatar visits on Tuesday, amid accusations that the country’s Gulf rivals are paying protesters to oppose the country’s activities and create the impression of an upswell of British support against the country.
