Malaysia refuses to interfere in the crisis of the province and advises the Emir of Qatar to dialogue with the Quartet.
“Failure accompanies him to Malaysia year after year.” This is the title of his visit to Malaysia today, where he is trying to satisfy the Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohamad to help improve relations with the Arab boycott countries. For the second time in two years, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, fails as Mahathir Mohammed’s response is similar to that of former Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razek, who has embarrassed the Emir of Qatar before saying that Malaysia’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is stronger.
Special sources revealed that Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad’s attempts are to exploit his visit to Malaysia and persuade Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad to become a mediator in improving relations with the Arab countries of the province, or try to disturb the relationship with Saudi Arabia specifically.
The sources confirmed to “Arab Mubasher” that Tamim discussed solutions for the Arab boycott and the Syrian crisis with Mahathir Mohammed.
Malaysian Prime Minister expressed the need to resolve the crisis between the Arab Quartet and Qatar by dialogue and diplomatic ways between the parties concerned, stressing the difficulty of his intervention as a mediator of the solution.
The quartet of anti-terrorism Arab states, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, have cut ties with Qatar after being accused of supporting terrorism.
Tamim’s attempts to earn favor with Malaysia and cut the ties between Malaysia the Arab Quartet, specifically Saudi Arabia, are not stopping.
One of Tamim’s last year’s attempts, when he had asked the former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razek to act as a mediator, had also been rejected.
The Malaysian prime minister’s response was decisive
“Malaysia has a special relationship with the Saudi government, especially the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman,” stressing that King Salman’s recent visit to Malaysia was successful; therefore, his country would maintain high level relations with with the Kingdom
The Malaysian prime minister added that Tamim’s visit had no effect on the Malaysian relations with the kingdom. “I think the Kingdom is aware of our opinion about the Emir’s visit. It will not affect our relations with the Gulf countries, especially the Kingdom,” he said.
