    Text size statements of the emir of Qatar on Tuesday. The statements were quoted by the Qatar News Agency, about Doha’s positions supporting extremist groups and inflaming the events in Bahrain.

    The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, stressed that Qatar has succeeded in building strong relations with the US and Iran at the same time, praising the role of Iran on the regional and Islamic levels. He added that it is not wise to escalate the situation against Iran, especially that the latter is a superpower that ensures the stability in the region when cooperating with it. According to the statements, Qatar is keen on cooperating with Iran for the stability of neighboring countries.

    You bet.
    This Emir is such a big mouth. Not the first time his statements have put him in trouble.

    Qatar is probably one of the worst actors there.
