The Ministry of Interior said in a statement yesterday that Qatar, in accordance with its firm beliefs and principles, works on avoiding political conflicts with states and governments when dealing with their people. It stressed that Qatar did not take any measures against its residents who hold the nationalities of countries that severed diplomatic ties or lowered diplomatic representations with Qatar, on the back of hostile and tendentious campaigns against the country. The statement said that those residents have the complete freedom in staying in Qatar in accordance with the state’s laws and regulations, through a work contract approved by their countries.
