Riyadh- Qatar News Agency distortion of the phone call content between Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani is a continuity of the Qatari policies, experts said.

Saudi Arabia announced on Saturday suspending any dialogue with Qatar until it issues a clear statement on its stance, noting that what has been published by Qatar News Agency has nothing to do with the truth.

Dr. Ibrahim al-Nahas, member of Shura Council Committee on Foreign Affairs, said that the Qatari distortion of the phone call content with Mohammed bin Salman that pushed Saudi Arabia to suspend dialogue or any communication with Qatari authorities represents the continuity of Qatar’s policies in practicing political offenses.

During a phonecall with Asharq Al-Awsat, Nahas declared that the Qatari emir initiative is to alleviate international pressure on Qatar as well as the internal forces impatience over those controlling the Qatari policy, which is supportive to terrorism and instability in states.

Nahas noted that these practices aim to deceive the international community through claiming willingness to resolve the crisis—yet he stressed that this is a desperate attempt that affected the Qatari policy negatively.

Saudi political analyst Dr. Ali al-Tawati said that the Qatari regime faced huge pressure from US President Donald Trump to call the Saudi crown prince, but other parties in the authority were uncontent with ending the crisis so they intended to distort facts.

Tawati said that what happened shows the absence of willingness to resolve the crisis with the boycott countries, adding that there is a real struggle among ruling parties in Qatar.
