Qatar says Turkish military to ensure its safety

Sheikh Mohammed said Thursday Qatar had not yet been presented with the list.

"Qatar's policy is a dead end and it will only lead to destruction, so essentially what we are asking is for the Qataris to give up on their foreign policy which calls up for an an alliance between a tremendous amount of wealth and extremely radical Islam".

He added that the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim "directed us to have a strategic program" for Qatar so that it is not affected by any measures that might be taken by regional countries and to "work to be self-reliant in providing basic resources so that life would go by normally for citizens and residents".

Omar Saif Ghobas, the United Arab Emirates' ambassador to Russian Federation, said a verification system would have to be put in place to ensure Qatar stuck to any future deal not to nurture or fund terror.

"Whatever we know about, we are hearing from the media".

Safari isn't the only browser cracking down: The next version of Google Chrome will block ads on sites with poor ad experiences. Like the Amazon Echo and Google Home , the HomePod will play music while also helping people to manage their lives and homes .

Asked if Qatar could say anything to reassure its Gulf opponents, Ghobas replied: "It is true it will be hard in the long run if they agree to sign another document and then decide to drag it out for many months or years and to continue to fund extremist groups".

Foreign minister said that UAE is exploiting trading position as a political tool.

Sheikh Mohammed was also dismissive of claims Qatar supports Islamist groups like the Palestinian movement Hamas, blacklisted as a terrorist group by the European Union and the United States.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman's comments come a day after high-level UAE government official told AFP news agency that the unprecedented measures against Qatar aim to pressure the country into making drastic policy changes.

But despite his defiance, the foreign minister was adamant the crisis would not evolve into a military conflict.

When 6-year-old Edith Fuller of Tulsa, Okla., was asked to spell the word " nyctinasty ", she first asked for the definition. The Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals will begin Thursday at 10 a.m. and can be watched on ESPN2.

Later, in a roundtable discussion with a number of journalists, Sheikh Mohammed said his country would not be defeated.

He also said he expected no changes in Qatar's arrangement with the United States, with the Gulf state hosting the biggest U.S. military base in the Middle East.

"We have been isolated because we are successful and progressive..."

On what was said to be the demands of the states which severed their relations with Qatar, Al-Thani said "There are no clear demands yet, and we are waiting", adding that he does not expect any military escalation in the current crisis.

"No one will break us".
