Dr. Khalid Al Shafi Says The New ‘Blacklist’ Is A Measure Taken To Prolong The Crisis

The international community has definitely been concerned with the ongoing Gulf crisis and the number of high profile visits to the region is a testimony to their concern.

“They have visited Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to accelerate mediation and to say that any dispute in this region may affect others’ interests,” said Dr. Khalid Mubarak Al Shafi, Editor-in-Chief of The Peninsula while talking on a Qatar TV talk show ‘The Truth’ on Tuesday.

He added that, “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had stressed during his visit that the region cannot bear more crisis, and in the last statement Erdogan expressed some hope and positive signs which he had seen in his visit to the region.”

When asked about the list released by the siege countries he said that,  “The aim of releasing such a list is to prolong and extend the crisis, and as I said there are some signs of solutions though they are weak.”

“No one recognises these lists and the UN has rejected them. If we see, it is linked more to the UAE, Yemen and Libya.”  He said that the siege countries had retreated demands from 13 to six.

He said that people in Saudi Arabia call Al Arabiya as ‘al-ibriyah’ because of its tendency to spread fake news, he made this statement when he was asked whether Al Arabiya and Skynews channels can replace Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera established in 1996 has replaced the old media that were used to focus on the coverage of VIPs.

Meanwhile, Jaber Al Huwail, Director of the Legal Affairs Department at the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC), said that it was a mistake to mix political issues with human rights.

He revealed that there were around 3000 complaints filed by the people who were affected by the blockade.

“These complaints varied from people to people like complaints on lost properties, education and transport and also about separation from their families,” he said adding that, “We receive some complaints from people saying that they have workers in Saudi Arabia and cannot send them money and cannot travel to them.”

He added that the religion should not be mixed with politics. “I met with a number of Umrah and Haj agents who said they could not send money to book hotel rooms and Qatari riyals were not accepted in Saudi Arabia. The agents are afraid as they cannot offer protection to their pilgrims for any services.”
