BBC- Gulf diplomatic crisis over Qatar's 'interference'

In this edition of BBC Arabic's Newsnight (06/03/2014) I discuss the latest diplomatic spat over Qatar's international policies. Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates took the unprecedented decision to withdraw their respective ambassadors from Qatar. Although the tripartite joint statement refers to the alleged Qatar's 'interference' in the internal affairs of fellow Gulf states, this diplomatic crisis appears to have been triggered by Qatar's support for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and its unwillingness to bow to the strongmen in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.
