The Emirati Minister of State for Foreign Affairs has cautioned that a diplomatic standoff between Qatar and its Persian Gulf neighbors is heading towards a long estrangement.

Writing on social media, Anwar al-Gargash added the 40-DAY old crisis is far from a political solution.

On Friday the Qatari foreign minister dismissed as baseless terror funding allegations against his country by a Saudi-led Arab alliance.

Mohammed bin Abdurrahman Al Thani says there has been no evidence submitted to prove the allegations against Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt have imposed diplomatic and commercial sanctions on Doha.

The quartet accuses Qatar of disrupting regional security, an allegation the Persian Gulf Island has strongly rejected.
