Qatar's foreign minister Thursday rejected interference in his country's foreign policy, ruling out a military solution to a crisis which has seen Riyadh and its allies cut ties with Doha.
On what was said to be the demands of the states which severed their relations with Qatar, Al-Thani said "There are no clear demands yet, and we are waiting", adding that he does not expect any military escalation in the current crisis.

He added that the transport blockade declared by the Saudi-led group of countries opposing Qatar in the ongoing row would not hurt Doha.
"We are not ready to surrender, and will never be ready to surrender, the independence of our foreign policy", Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman said.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman's comments come a day after high-level UAE government official told AFP news agency that the unprecedented measures against Qatar aim to pressure the country into making drastic policy changes.
