Nation had been accused of supporting Islamists

Qatar is hosting an important summit to discuss the persistence of the Islamist threat as well as the impact of the collapse of oil prices as a primary source of income. After being accused by much of North Africa and Sahel of destabilizing the region due to its previous support for the Islamists, Qatar is now addressing the issue in a more forthright manner.

The Gulf States have avoided the disintegration and all eyes are now turned to the reconciliation as being motivated by the persistence of the threat in the whole region.

ALGIERS, ALGERIA (Catholic Online) - The conflict will be resolved through talks on security issues, not only in the African continent but in the whole Middle East. Falling oil prices and its impact on other Arab countries, especially tumultuous Egypt will be among the focal points in Doha. The area has a heavy influence in the Gulf Cooperation Council, or GCC.

The crisis in the Gulf region is about to be resolved thanks to the willpower showed by each part. This unstable condition was perceptible through the different communiques issued by the different kingdoms when exchanging animosity and accusations.

Act now, please help save fellow Christians from genocide!

These accusations peaked in March of this year with a return of emissaries from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates of ambassadors in Qatar, whom they accused of destabilizing the region by supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. This unprecedented conflict between Qatar and other monarchies of the Gulf Cooperation Council has impacted seriously the North African region, which has witnessed the coercion of the Islamic State's terrorist activities.

The Gulf States have avoided the disintegration and all eyes are now turned to the reconciliation as being motivated by the persistence of the threat in the whole region. Jihadist groups linked to Islamic State are still sowing chaos in Syria and Iraq, at the door of the Gulf monarchies. Also the growing regional influence of Shiite Iran's main rival Sunni Saudi Arabia has exacerbated tensions in the region in the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011. So in front of this great danger, the necessity to resolve all the disputes emerged and has become utmost amidst the Gulf policy makers.
