Saudi Arabia become puppet of USA in region: Iran's Safavi

Microblogging site Twitter has briefly suspended the Al Jazeera Media Network's Arabic-language Twitter account.

Tensions between Qatar and its Gulf neighbours Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are not new, says Juneau.

Ankara is at the forefront of efforts to defuse a diplomatic crisis that led Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain, as well as Egypt and other countries, to sever ties with Qatar, which is a strong ally of Ankara. The latest country to join the bandwagon was Maldives that also announced maintaining no relations with Gulf state "because of its firm opposition to activities that encourage terrorism and extremism".

Qatar denies the accusations, describing the move to isolate it diplomatically as "unjustified".

Speaking in London, on Friday, Adel al-Jubeir called on Qatar to respond to what he claimed were worldwide and regional calls for it to halt its support for "extremism and terrorism". Qatar's North Dome gas field extends into Iranian waters, where it's known as the South Pars field.

The rebuttal came after Bahrain's official TV broadcast a 2011 phone conversation between an adviser to the Qatari emir and a leader of the now-dissolved main Shia opposition group Al-Wefaq in Bahrain, citing it as an example of Doha's interference.

Jubeir did not detail what demands could be made.

The statement was prompted following an online report that appeared on fox-news24.com, claiming that Saudi Arabia had cut off ties with Malta over its friendship with Qatar.

Gulf Arab annoyance at Qatar flared into open anger in 2011, when Qatar quickly embraced the Arab Spring uprisings, particularly in Egypt, Libya and Syria.

The account was restored later on Saturday.

But Sinan Ulgen, director of the Center for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies in Istanbul, says he doesn't see a Qatar-Russia-Iran-Turkey alliance being forged - at least, not yet.
