On Thursday, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said that Qatar has failed to present a coherent case at the International Court of Justice against the Arab quartet’s boycott.

In a tweet, Gargash said, “Pleading ended today at the ICJ and the Qatari legal team came up with nothing new”.

He added that Qatar’s contradictions undermined its legal position at the court and embarrassed its lawyers.

“Doha’s big dilemma is that it claims discrimination against its citizens only to become clear at the court that it is the one that blocks websites, which facilitate their movement, and deliberately restricts them,” the official added.

The diplomatic and transportation links with Qatar was dismissed by the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Egypt in June 2017 over its support for terrorist groups. Qatar has repeatedly alleged that the boycott has neglected its citizens’ rights and filed legal complaints at international agencies.
