Qatar plays down fears of rift with Arab states over “fake” criticism by emir

Qatar's foreign minister on Thursday played down fears of a rift with fellow Arab states over what it had said were fake remarks by its emir criticising U.S. foreign policy, saying they shared the same interests and fate.

(reuters) -- "Qatar is always in favour of maintaining strong and brotherly relations with GCC ([persian] Gulf Cooperation Council)countries," Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told a new conference in the Qatari capital.

"In Riyadh we had very positive discussions about the relationship between [persian] Gulf countries," he added, referring to talks in the Saudi capital.
