In a statement issued in London, he said #Qatar does not support extremist groups in the region, including Islamic State militants in any form. He said #Qatar rejects their ideas, their style and their violent ambitions.

Dr Al Attiyah said the vision of extremist groups in the region are not consistent with the vision of #Qatar and will not be supported at all in any way.

He said the killing of innocent civilians and the forced deportation of hundreds of thousands of people threaten the existence of #Iraq and peaceand security in the region. Dr Al Attiyah urged the Iraqi government to provide safety and security for civilians and said #Qatar will continue to provide humanitarian aid to the Iraqi people.


He said #Qatar supports the Syrian opposition like a lot of countries in the Middle East and the international community, but does not fund IS or any other extremist factions.

Meanwhile, Saudi is hosting today a meeting in Jeddah of foreign ministers of five Arab states to discuss ways to reach a political solution to the Syrian crisis in view of the growing presence of the IS militants in #Iraq and #Syria which threatens regional security.
