This came in a video conference with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Thursday evening, in which he discussed his country’s position on various issues.
In response to a question about the Qatar crisis, the Saudi minister said that “if Qatar is committed to addressing the security concerns that called on the four countries calling for combating terrorism to take their decisions, it will be good for the security and stability of the region.”
On June 5, 2017, the Arab Quartet announced the severance of diplomatic relations and transportation lines with Qatar due to its insistence on supporting terrorist organizations in the region and the world.
On June 22 of the same year, the four countries submitted to Qatar, via Kuwait, a list of 13 demands to restore relations with Doha, all of which revolve around what the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad, had previously pledged in the framework of the 2013 Riyadh Agreement and the 2014 Riyadh Supplementary Agreement .
The four countries have repeatedly stressed that the measures they have taken are based on exercising their sovereign rights guaranteed by international law and protecting their national security from the dangers of terrorism and extremism that Doha supports.
However, at the same time, it completely differentiates between Qatar as a people and as a government, and it has taken all necessary measures and humanitarian efforts to ensure that the Qataris are not affected by the boycott measures.
On the other hand, the Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, warned against continuing Iranian support for terrorism.
He said, “Iran openly supports terrorist groups and cells and armed militias in Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen, and has even reached South America.”
He stressed that “wherever there are problems in the region, you will find Iran.”
And that “the policies of the Iranian organization and its proxies have led to a political and humanitarian crisis in brotherly Yemen.”
With regard to peace in the Middle East, the Saudi Foreign Minister stressed the importance of resuming negotiations between the Palestinian and Israeli sides.
Prince Faisal said peace efforts in the Middle East should focus on bringing the Palestinians and Israelis back to the negotiating table.
Ultimately, he added, “the only thing that can achieve lasting peace and stability is an agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis.”
The Saudi-American strategic dialogue began in Washington, DC, on Wednesday.
The sessions will be chaired by Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan, and on the American side, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State.
And the US State Department said, in a statement, that the dialogue will focus on common commitments to enhance regional security and prosperity, economic development, and people-to-people communication, in addition to other files that have strengthened bilateral relations between the two countries.
For decades, Saudi Arabia and the United States have close ties, and the Kingdom is a strategic partner for Washington in the Middle East.
