Doha uses its public relations in its campaign against the boycotting countries. We are in the third month of crisis and Qatar still trying to escape the boycotting countries’ pressures demanding it to stop supporting terrorism. Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain have cut ties with Doha two month ago, accusing it of supporting terrorism and extremism. The four countries listed 13 demands; the most known demands are closing Al-Jazeera Network channel and the Turki Military base, and decreasing the diplomatic relations with Tehran.
The campaign is noticeable through its ambassadors’ press statements Mohammed al-Maliki, which involves Qatar adopting an “arrogant stance and shifting responsibility onto the boycotting countries.” The Qatari Ambassador in Moldova issued a press statement, denying any responsibility for his country’s deteriorating relations with the boycotting countries. He hinted that Qatar is seeking closer bilateral relations with Moldovia and the state is looking into pursuing huge investments there, especially in the agricultural field. The Qatari ambassador in Spain, Mohammed Al Kuwari, referred to the boycott as an unjust blockade. He continued saying that the circumstances will not prevent Qatar from developing its ties with the world. He also used the money card to gain allies or new friends through luring them into the idea of Qatari investments in the agricultural field in the Spanish territory of Extremadura.
