New York / Information Office / July 27

HE Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani met here today with HE Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres.

They discussed during the meeting aspects of enhancing joint cooperation between the State of Qatar and the United Nations in all fields of common concern.

His Excellency briefed the UN Secretary-General on the latest developments in the Gulf crisis and all measures taken by the siege countries against Qatar and their serious violations of international treaties, conventions and laws.

HE the Foreign Minister stressed Qatar's keenness on pursuing dialogue as a means to resole the Gulf crisis and its readiness to sit on dialogue table along with the siege countries to resolve the crisis based on the principles of respect for international law and the sovereignty of the State of Qatar.

In a press statement after the meeting, HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said that Qatar will spare no effort to overcome these violations through the right channels, pointing out that the United Nations is the right platform to start with.

He added that the State of Qatar has informed the UN Security Council about the existing violations. "We met with many officials and explained to them how this crisis was based on weak grounds, a hacking which in itself is a cyberterrorism against the State of Qatar," he said, adding that the Security Council and the General Assembly will have a special role to play if violations by the siege countries continue.

HE the Foreign Minister expressed Qatar's condemnation of the actions taken by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people in Al Quds as well as its condemnation of any actions that undermine the security of the Al Aqsa Mosque.
