Qatar stands stronger than ever at the end of 100 days since the start of Saudi-led siege, Mohamed Attiq, a senior banker, told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live radio show Haqeeqat yesterday.
“The countries who imposed a ban thought they will destroy Qatar and its economy within 48 hours, but 100 days have passed and we see that Qatar has now become self-reliant as it continues to progress and develop in all fields,” he explained.
Attiq added that the June 5 blockade of Qatar came as a shock to everyone. “From the very beginning it was clear that Saudi Arabia and the UAE wanted to attack Qatar’s sovereignty and we are proud that Qatar has stood its ground,” he said.
Haqeeqat aims to engage and interact with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar. It is a joint venture of Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corporation Urdu Radio, and broadcasts from Sunday to Thursday on FM107.
