Despite blockade Qatar unaffected

Prime News, International, Doha, July 12:- Even after a month after the four Arab nations impose a blockade on Qatar, it seems that the ‘Gas-rich’ nation has no trouble out of blockade.

Four Arab nations, Saudi Arabia, air spaceBahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt imposed blockade and severed diplomatic ties with Qatar airspace and shipping lanes over Qatar’s support for Islamist groups across the region.

Qatar summarily rejected the charge of supporting extremist and has condemned the closures of the border as an attack on its sovereignty.

Worried Qatari residents rushed to grocery stores, emptying shelves of dairy and other food imports after Saudi Arabia sealed Qatar’s only land border, but they were quickly restocked.
Grocery stores are overflowing with meats and cheeses from Europe and Turkey Qatar’s close ally, and just last month the country’s main port received 4,300 cars and sheep from Australia.

Luxury hotels are serving lavish meals round the clock and alcohol flows uninterruptedly to visitors. Famous Barcelona soccer players Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba met  fans last week at a mall in the capital, Doha, which will host the 2022 World Cup tournament.

Qatari citizen Badr Jeran said that “We don’t feel any difference. It’s a celebration everywhere

The move by four Arab nations appears to have little effect on Qatar and support pouring in for Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the 37-year-old emir.
