Doha won’t give in to pressure over Bashir: Hamad bin Jassem



“There are pressures, but you know Qatar well,” the prime minister said in remarks broadcast by Al Jazeera television.

He did not say who was putting pressure on Qatar, a close US ally that hosts a large US military base. “We presented the invitation and I have come to present it again, as the prime minister and foreign minister. We respect international law and we respect the presence of Bashir in Qatar,” he said, addressing reporters in Khartoum. Gulf Arab countries have expressed strong support for Bashir.
