Arab states demand Qatar close al-Jazeera


That is according to a list obtained by the vox from one of the countries involved in the dispute.Kuwait has given Qatar a list of demands from Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations that includes shutting down al-Jazeera and cutting diplomatic ties to Iran.

The document says Qatar has 10 days to comply with all demands.

The list says Qatar must immediately close Turkey's military base in Qatar and end military co-operation with the NATO member.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut ties to Qatar earlier in June over accusations the Persian Gulf country funds terrorism.

The US has been urging them to produce a list of demands and Kuwait is helping mediate.
