Iraq foreign minister says against 'isolating and besieging' any country

DOHA – Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said on Wednesday his country was against "isolating and besieging" any other country.

He was speaking in the Qatari capital Doha.

 

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and transport ties with Doha on June 5, saying Qatar supports regional foe Iran and Islamists, a charge which Qatar denies.
