Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs H E Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said yesterday that the State of Qatar and other countries are urging Iran and the US to de-escalation, calling on both sides to meet and find a compromise.

“We believe that at one point there should an engagement — it cannot last forever like this,” H E the Foreign Minister told reporters in London.

“Since they are not willing to engage in further escalation, they should come up with ideas that open the doors,” H E the Foreign Minister added.

H E the Foreign Minister said that several countries including the State of Qatar, Oman, Iraq, and Japan had been urging de-escalation with the two sides.

H E the Foreign Minister said: “All these countries are concerned what escalation could lead to,” adding, “there were attempts by Qatar and by other countries in the region to de-escalate the situation: We have been speaking to the US and we have been talking to the Iranians as well.”

“What we are trying to do is really to bridge the gap and create a conversation between the two parties as escalation is not going to benefit anyone in the region,” H E the Foreign Minister said.

In regard to the ongoing Gulf crisis H E Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs said: “When you have one of the parties aiming for zero sum game, nothing will change”, adding that “nothing has changed”.

H E Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs said that Qatar will accept any Middle East peace plan that is acceptable to the Palestinians.

H E added that there was a disconnect between the Palestinians and the United States over a US blueprint aimed at ending the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

“Our position remains very firm: We are going to support any plan that the Palestinians are willing to accept.”

“It cannot be a solution like, sort of, imposed on the Palestinians — no country in the Arab world can accept that,” said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs H E Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani .

“If the plan is rejected by one of the parties it means the plan is either unfair or just not realistic,” H E the Deputy Prime Minister added. “The best scenario is either that both parties accept it or that both parties reject it.”

قال سعادة الشيخ محمد بن عبدالرحمن آل ثاني نائب رئيس مجلس الوزراء وزير الخارجية، اليوم، إن دولة قطر ودولا أخرى تعمل على حث كل من إيران والولايات المتحدة من أجل وقف التصعيد بين البلدين.. داعيا كلا الجانبين للاجتماع وإيجاد حل وسط.

وأعرب سعادته، في تصريحات للصحفيين في لندن، “عن اعتقاده أنه عند مرحلة ما يجب أن يكون هناك تواصل بين الجانبين، فلا يمكن أن يستمر الوضع كذلك إلى الأبد”.

وأضاف “بما أنهم غير مستعدين للدخول في مزيد من التصعيد، فإنه يجب عليهم التوصل لأفكار من شأنها أن تفتح الأبواب”.

وأكد سعادة الشيخ محمد بن عبدالرحمن آل ثاني، أن هناك دولا عديدة، من بينها قطر وعمان والعراق واليابان، تحث على وقف التصعيد بين الطرفين.

وتابع قائلا ” كل هذه الدول تشعر بالقلق إزاء ما يمكن أن يؤدي إليه التصعيد. وقد كانت هناك محاولات من قبل قطر ودول أخرى في المنطقة لتهدئة الوضع ووقف التصعيد، ونحن نجري محادثات مع الولايات المتحدة، وكذلك مع الإيرانيين”.

وأردف سعادته “ما نحاول القيام به فعليا هو سد الفجوة وإقامة محادثات بين الطرفين، لأن التصعيد لن يكون مفيدا لأي أحد في المنطقة”.
