Qatar's ambassador to Moscow, Fahd bin Mohammed al-Attiyah, said his country could withstand the embargo imposed on it and would continue to do so, but it could take legal measures to bind the four countries to international law and agreements.
"We will take legal measures very soon if Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE do not take some constructive steps and if the mediation does not achieve any progress later," Al-Attiyah told SPOTNIK.
The ambassador stressed that the blockade can not continue forever and that his country will not bow to any dictation and methods of bullying and will not hand over sovereignty to anyone.
The Qatari ambassador noted his country's ability to continue with the current circumstances and stressed that there was no practical progress in the situation and did not ease the measures taken against Qatar. He pointed out that the international community discovered the real motives and that what happened to Qatar on May 24 was an attack by another country through the agency piracy National News.
Qatari officials have repeatedly pointed to the possibility of legal action before the World Trade Organization (WTO) against the four countries because of the measures they have taken, particularly in the economic sphere.
The Gulf-Qatar crisis erupted after the four countries accused Qatar of supporting terrorism and broke off diplomatic ties with it on June 5 and imposed a sea, land and air blockade.
