The Emir of Kuwait has urged Gulf countries to settle their differences as a row among three of the Gulf Co-operation Council's (GCC) members and Qatar enters its eighth month.
Qatar has prudently handled and overcome the blockade imposed by some neighbouring countries, a Swiss student currently studying in Doha under an exchange programme has said.
The Al Thumama Health Centre (HC) in Doha has provided medical services to more 8,150 nationals of the siege countries since the start of the blockade in June, according to local Arabic daily Arrayah.
The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) is seeing a surge in business as Qataris register more of their assets at home and multinationals navigating a blockade of the country boost their local presence, its chief executive Yousuf al-Jaida told Reuters.
The six-month blockade has provided Qatar with the "wake-up call it needed," Qatar ambassador to the UK, Yousef Ali al-Khater, said in London.
Qatar National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) has noted with great concern the escalation of the discourse of hatred and incitement to violence against Qatar and citizens and residents of Qatar by some media outlets, including social media sites in the siege countries.
