MOSCOW, 7 Jun — RIA Novosti. A preliminary investigation confirmed that provoked a diplomatic conflict statement on behalf of the Emir of Qatar to the website of the local news agencies really put hackers, reports Reuters, citing a Qatari foreign Ministry.

The conflict between Qatar and its neighbors in the region occurred a week after the summit, the Gulf countries and the United States in Riyadh, when the Qatar news Agency posted the speech on behalf of the Emir of the country in support of building relations with Iran. Later the official representative the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Qatar, said that the Agency website was hacked and a speech on behalf of the Emir were published by the hackers and has nothing to do with the Qatari leader.
However, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain considered this rebuttal unconvincing, and continue to insist that the words on the normalization of relations with Iran really belongs to the Emir. The UAE Minister of state for foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash called on Qatar to change its policy and not to repeat past mistakes, to restore relations with neighbors.
