rab's considering fresh sanctions on Qatar

Arab states are considering fresh sanctions on Qatar and could ask their trading partners to choose between working with them or Doha, the UAE ambassador to Russia, Omar Ghobash, said in an interview with The Guardian newspaper.

"There are certain sanctions that we can take which are being considered right now," Ghobash said. "One possibility would be to impose conditions on our trading partners and say you want to work with us then you have got to make a choice," he said.
