Qatar calls for dialogues to resolve disputes

Qatar's emir Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani called on Friday for dialogue to resolve a political crisis pitting his country against four Arab states.

In a speech to the nation, the emir said he was ready for dialogue but any solution to the Gulf crisis must respect Qatar's sovereignty. He valued earlier attempts by Kuwait, Turkey and the United States to try to resolve the crisis, adding that Qatar was committed to fighting terrorism not because it wants to please others but because it believes in doing so.

Earlier, Qatar announced amendments to its anti-terror legislation, one of the core issues underlying the crisis in the Gulf. It also created two national terrorism lists and established rules for including individuals and groups on each list.
