AKIPRESS.COM - Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies said Qatar "will receive a reply in due time" after the group of countries confirmed receiving a response to their list of demands, Al Jazeera reported.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt announced on June 5 they were severing ties with Qatar and later put forward a list of 13 demands.

On Monday, Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani handed over a letter from Qatar's emir in response to the demands to Kuwait, which is mediating in the dispute, according to state-run Kuwait News Agency.

"Minister Adel al-Jubeir received from the Kuwaiti state minister Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al Sabah the official Qatari response regarding the demands of the boycotting countries," Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said on Twitter early on Wednesday.

"Qatar will receive a reply in due time," said a statement, according to the Saudi News Agency.

On Tuesday, Qatar's foreign minister said the list of conditions for restoring relations "is unrealistic and is not actionable".

"It's not about terrorism, it's talking about shutting down the freedom of speech," he said at a joint press conference after talks with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel.

The list of demands by the group included Doha ending its support for the Muslim Brotherhood, closing Al Jazeera Media Network, downgrading diplomatic ties with Iran and shutting down a Turkish military base in the country.
