Qatar bars shops from selling goods from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt

Last June, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the UAE imposed a land, naval and air blockade on import-dependent Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism, an allegation strongly denied by Doha.

The government's directive on Saturday is meant to "find new suppliers of the variety of goods impacted" by the blockade, a statement said.

His comments came a day after Qatar ordered shops to immediately strip shelves of products from the blockading countries that had bypassed the boycott by being shipped from third countries. Inspectors will be visiting shops to ensure compliance.

Saudi and UAE officials have said that Doha has yet to meet 13 demands made by the four states, including closing the state-funded Al Jazeera television station and reducing ties to Iran.

"This state has put one of its citizens on the terrorism list, and after a few days they attend his son's wedding", he said, referring to Abdulrahman Al-Nuaimi who was labeled a terrorist by the USA government in December 2013, and the United Nations in September 2014, for providing financial support to terrorist organizations. Qatar has also launched a drive to produce more things locally, including foods.

A spokesman for Qatar's government declined to give details but said any imports coming to the country must go through proper import inspections.

These measures impacted all goods passing across (or that could pass across), the Government Communication Office said in a statement.

Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said his country sees "no resolution in sight" in the Gulf crisis between Qatar and the four boycotting countries, according to an interview with London-based Arabic worldwide newspaper Alsharq Alawsat.
