A senior United Arab Emirates (UAE) official said on Saturday that if Qatar did not accept an ultimatum issued by Arab states which imposed a boycott on the small Gulf Arab nation this month, "the alternative is not escalation but parting ways".
Speaking after Eid al-Fitr prayers in Istanbul, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the demand "disrespectful" and said Turkey would not seek permission from others when making its defense cooperation agreements.
On June 5, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic ties and transportation with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism, a charge which Doha has denied.
In a 13-point list presented to the Qataris by Kuwait, which is helping mediate the crisis the countries also demand that Qatar sever all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and with other groups including Hezbollah, al-Qaida and the Islamic State group.

"We have noticed the European and American interest in this, especially as these countries are also affected by extremism and terrorism", the UAE minister said.
"We believe it's a family issue and that they should work out".
