Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi reiterated on Tuesday that Qatar must meet the 13 demands requested by the quartet of nations that cut trade and transport ties with the Gulf state in 2017 in order to resolve the crisis.
Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain severed relations with fellow GCC member Qatar in June 2017 because of Doha's interference in other countries’ internal affairs and support for terrorist groups including the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt joined the boycott.
Qatar denies the charges.
"There are on going efforts that we hope would succeed. Doha’s position has not changed and there are 13 conditions that have not been met,” Mr El Sisi told reporters during The World Youth Forum in Sharm Al Sheikh.
Acting as a mediator, Kuwait presented Qatar in 2017 with a list of demands from the four Arab nations.
The demands stipulate that Doha must close the broadcaster Al Jazeera, drastically scale back cooperation with Iran, remove Turkish troops from Qatar’s soil, end contact with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and submit to monthly external compliance checks.
The four states stressed the demands would "protect their national security from terrorism."
Mr El Sisi's comments comes as Qatar's Foreign Minister, Sheikh Mohammad bin Abdul Rahman, said talks with Saudi Arabia have broken the stalemate and that Doha would "study the demands".
But Sheikh Mohammed said Doha would not alter relations with Ankara in order to resolve the dispute.
Officials in the Gulf and Egypt have long said that relations could be restored if Qatar took serious actions to address these concerns, including its support for the Muslim Brotherhood.
The White House said President Donald Trump spoke with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim on Monday and expressed hope that Qatar’s discussions with its Gulf partners “would lead to resolution of the Gulf dispute".
