Dubai, July 31: As soon as the Gulf crisis enters in the second month, the four Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt finally agreed to ease the dispute if Doha agrees to certain demands.

Expressing their readiness to have a talk with Qatar, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister on Sunday said that all the four countries are ready for dialogue to ease the dispute if Doha agrees to fulfil certain demands i.e willingness to stop funding terrorists.

Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa said, "The four countries are ready for dialogue with Qatar with the condition that it announces its sincere willingness to stop funding terrorism and extremism and its commitment to not interfere in other countries' foreign affairs and respond to the 13 demands."

Notably, Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa was speaking at a televised news conference in Manama after meeting with his Saudi, Emirati and Egyptian counterparts to discuss the Qatar ban. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have previously issued a list of demands for Qatar.

Recently, the central bank of United Arab Emirates (UAE) taking a stringent move against terrorism asked all other banks and financial institutions to stop dealing with 18 more individuals and entities with alleged links to Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and several other nations cut ties with Qatar and imposed stringent economic sanctions on it over supporting extremism. On the other side, Qatar denied all their allegations saying that they never supported Islamist militants and Shi'ite Iran. Later, Saudi and its allies issued a 13-point list of demands to end the rift on June 22 and gave Qatar 10 days to comply. However, earlier Qatar rejected to fulfil the demands.
