    TURKISH President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejected a list of demands from leading Arab states ordering him to withdraw his country’s troops from blockaded Qatar.

    The pull-out is one of 13 demands contained in an ultimatum from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt delivered on Thursday by mediating nation Kuwait.

    Mr Erdogan called the demand “disrespectful” and the whole ultimatum “an attack against a state’s sovereignty rights.”

    UAE Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash claimed the goal of the blockade was not “regime change” but a “behavioural change.”

    This was rejected by Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs which argued that the blockade has nothing to do with combatting terrorism but is about “limiting Qatar’s sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy.”

    THE dispute between Qatar and its neighbours took another twist yesterday as the Gulf state made a counterterrorism deal with the US.

    Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani signed the memorandum of understanding with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who flew into Doha that morning.

    Mr Tillerson’s senior adviser RC Hammond said the deal outlines future efforts the country can take to “fortify its fight against terrorism and actively address terrorism funding issues.”

    Last month Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a blockade on Qatar over alleged support for terrorist groups and friendly relations with Riyadh’s rival Iran.

    They issued a 13-point ultimatum of demands — including closing Qatar-based news network Al Jazeera.
