Qatar not willing to act against Tehran: FT

November 13, 2018

TEHRAN – It is not clear that the Qataris would be willing to play any active role against Tehran even if the U.S. forces the Saudis to end the blockade against Doha, according to the Financial Times.

In an article, Nick Butler wrote, “Doha must be well aware of the risks of Iranian retaliation if it joins the U.S. campaign against it. Old disputes about the division and development of the North Field/South Pars reserves could be reopened.”

“In extreme circumstances, Iran could block current development of the field and interfere with Qatar’s existing LNG exports,” he added.
