United Arab Emirates official: Qatar review a must before 2022 World Cup

Anwar Gargash Emirati minister
Anwar Gargash is United Arab Emirates' minister of state for foreign affairs.

United Arab Emirates' minister of state for foreign affairs has commented on Qatar hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup in light of the diplomatic crisis between Doha and four Arab nations.

Anwar Gargash wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: "Qatar's hosting of World Cup 2022 should include a repudiation of policies supporting extremism and terrorism. Doha should review its record.

"Hosting World Cup 2022 should not be tainted by support of extremist individuals and organisations/terrorist figures, review of Qatar's policies a must."

Doha has long denied funding extremists.

Gargash's comments come after a Dubai security official wrote on Twitter that the only way for "Qatar's crisis" to end is if Doha gives up the tournament.

Lt. Gen. Dhahi Khalfan later said his "personal analysis" of the financial pressure Doha faces in hosting the World Cup had been misunderstood.

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates began its boycott of Qatar on June 5.
