Saudi Arabia also gives Qatar food aid

riyad - Following Morocco, Iran and Turkey, Saudi Arabia has now also promised to provide Qatar with food and medical assistance, if its country is neglected. That's what the Foreign Minister said on Tuesday. The decision is remarkable as Saudi Arabia belongs to the countries that have broken their diplomatic and trade relations with Qatar.

Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, among other things, have removed the small peninsula. However, Minister Adel Al-Jubeir did not want to speak of a blockade on Tuesday but a boycott. The main reason for the 'boycott' is that Qatar maintains good relations with Iran. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states see an Iranian-Iranian enemy in southern Iran.

Qatar performs 80 percent of its food. That often came from Saudi Arabia, but the country closed the border.
