In a wide-ranging interview with the U.K.-based Qatari Al-Araby TV channel, Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammad Al-Attiyah said that Jabhat Al-Nusra should split from Al-Qaeda.
On the opposition to his country's bid to host the 2022 World Cup, Al-Attiyah said that it was motivated by racism.
With regard to relations of the Gulf states with Iran, the Qatari foreign minister said that the U.S. should not be involved. "The easiest and most useful way is one of direct dialogue with the Iranians," he said in the August 5-6, 2015 interview.
