The Qatar crisis is about foreign policy and about terrorism, depending on which side you listen to. The latest deadline set by Gulf Arab states for Qatar to submit to a humiliating list of 13 demands is due to expire at midnight on Tuesday. Qatar stands accused of supporting terrorism and extremism by a triumvirate of Gulf Arab states - Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain - backed by Egypt and others. Saudi Arabia has closed Qatar's only land border, forcing it to get regular plane-loads of food from Iran. The 13 demands include closing down Qatar's controversial satellite TV network, Al Jazeera, which has long been a thorn in the side of its conservative neighbours. Another demand is the closing of a Turkish military base, recently reinforced by a contingent of troops and armoured vehicles. It's complicated and threatens to further complicate the geo-political situation in the Middle East. Understand what this crisis is about in this article.
