Saudi calls Qatar to end support for extremists

SAUDI CALLS QATAR TO END SUPPORT FOR EXTREMISTS

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister is calling for Qatar to end "its support for extremist groups" and its "interference" in other countries in the region.

Adel al-Jubeir spoke Wednesday after meeting his German counterpart in Berlin. He said he hopes that "Qatar responds to our call to end its support for extremist groups and its interference in the affairs of the countries in the region." He called for Qatar "to become a neighbor and partner as we were accustomed to it."

Saudi Arabia and others cut ties with Qatar this week, accusing it of supporting extremists. Qatar denies the allegations.
