Qatari former minister: Saudi-led blockade meant to take over control of Qatar gas fields

Published

on

Former Qatari Minister of Energy and Industry Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah has said the countries that have been imposing a blockade on his country seek to solve their gas problem by invading Qatar and controlling the largest gas field there.

“The reasons for the blockade and the desire to occupy Qatar has nothing to do with terrorism. The world and its bodies, the World Bank, the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund know very well that Qatar has nothing to do with terrorism,” Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah said in during an interview with the Qatari Lusail newspaper, published on Monday.

He indicated that the besieging countries” tried to pass this conspiracy in order to convince the world to give a green light for an invasion of Qatar.”

He stressed that by having control of the world’s largest gas, which is located in Qatar, the invading countries would yield enough natural gas for 200 years, make hundreds of millions of dollars a day in profit, and provide gas to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain, through the extension of pipelines.

The Gulf region is witnessing a severe crisis that began in June 2017, when Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed their ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism on a large scale and pursuing a policy that threatens the security of the region, which the latter has denied.

Experts believe the crisis resulted from sectarian differences, with Qatar supporting orthodox Sunni Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, while Saudi Arabia supports Wahhabi takfiri organisations. The widespread influence of Qatar-based news organisation Al-Jazeera and highly profitable airline company Qatar Airways is also considered to be a thorn in the side of Saudi and UAE plans for hegemony.
But perhaps most of all, according to some analysts, is the fact that Qatar boasts huge reserves of natural gas, which could provide a cleaner and more attractive alternative for the petroleum exported by countries such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. This could explain why these petroleum-based Gulf kingdoms and their allies have acted against Qatar in such a rash and violent way.

Published

The Official spokesman for Ansrullah, Mohamed Abdul Salam has responded on Sunday to remarks made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Zionist leader had openly stated that the Saudi aggression on Yemen is part of a wider fight against Palestine and the Palestinian people.

“Netanyahu was clearly defending the aggression of Saudi Arabia and its war on Yemen in his press conference, as part of his fight against Palestine. He describes the Yemeni response to the US-Saudi aggression as a ‘threat’ to the usurper Zionist entity,” Abdel Salam said on social media.

The Ansarullah spokesman stressed that defending the cause of the nation of Yemen is a cherished medal of honor. Ansarullah and its allies have always described their struggle for the unity and freedom of the Yemeni republic as part of the broader struggle against imperialism and Zionism, and for the national independence of Palestine.

Al-Ajari furthermore stressed that this is the position of all Yemenis.

The Ansarullah fucntionary condemned the position of Saudi Arabia, which has all but turned into a defender of the Zionist colonial entity.

“No one expected that the day would come when the Saudi delegate to the United Nations openly defends the Zionist entity against what he called ‘Palestinian projectiles used against civilians’,” al-Ajari said during a political meeting under the slogan “United against the Deal of the Century”.

“The Arab and Islamic worlds have been mobilized in three peaks for an oil pipeline, while the bloodshed in Syria, Yemen and Palestine has not caused the entire Arab world to be summoned,” he added, referring to the hastily convened summits that Saudi Arabia has convened in order to propagate its pro-Zionist agenda.
