Al-Zaabi expressed his regret that the Qatari delegation is raising this matter for the second time during the day, which indicates that there is no honest intention on Qatar's part to review its policies and positions in support of terrorism and extremism.

On the first stop on his trip, the emir met Thursday night in Ankara with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who's been a major supporter of his country during the three-month-old diplomatic rift that's left Qatar isolated from its Gulf neighbors.

"The boycott was motivated by the damage caused by Qatar's irresponsible behaviour in supporting, funding and providing shelter to terrorists and terrorist organisations, which is what pushed our countries to make the decision to boycott Qatar".

Al Zaabi said that the four countries welcome the convening of the panel and restate their condemnation of the imposition of coercive measures because they are contrary to global laws and represent violations of human rights.

Muzin is known for his strong ties with Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
