UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash said Monday that the Washington Post report was false.

Qatar said on Monday that a U.S. media report had shown that the United Arab Emirates was involved in an alleged hack of Qatar's state news agency in late May that helped spark a diplomatic crisis in the Gulf.

The false reports posted on the Qatari websites said that Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani called Iran an "Islamic power" and praised Hamas, the Palestinian militant and political organization, The Post reported.

The Washington Post reports that new intelligence reveals the UAE government met to discuss the hacking plot and its execution on 23 May.

Whitehead agreed to pay the ransom but said he hasn't heard back from the thieves since that time. Whitehead says he received a call from what may have been a burner phone to demand the money.

Qatar has maintained its emir never made the remarks and that the quotes were planted by hackers.

UAE Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said that the agreement signed by the USA and Qatar on the financing of terrorism was a positive development but did not live up to their expectations.

"The Washington Post story is not true, purely not true", he said responding to a question after a speech at Chatham House in London.

The United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister warned Qatar on July 17, 2017 it could not belong to the Gulf Cooperation Council if it undermined regional security, calling for a "change of behaviour" but not "regime change".

Trump administration plans week to celebrate American-made goods
Clinton had announced plans to raise taxes in February and was facing criticism after firing the White House travel office staff. She said America sets "the world standard for quality and craftsmanship".

Qatari officials said the agency had been hacked by an "unknown entity" and that the story had "no basis whatsoever". Gulf states on June 5, 2017 cut diplomatic ties with neighbouring Qatar and kicked it out of a military coalition, less than a month after the USA president visited the region to cement ties with powerhouse Saudi Arabia.

Gargash also stated that the Arab states need to be convinced that Qatar is no longer a sponsor of terrorism.

The FBI, CIA as well as Britain's NCA, all of whom have been working with Qatar to investigate the QNA hack, are yet to comment on the matter. When did Trump and Tillerson learn about alleged UAE involvement in the hacks? Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas & Qadafi.

Qatar has denied the accusations and called the collective decision "unjustified". "Qatar inciting violence, encouraging radicalization, and undermining the stability of its neighbors", the ambassador said in a statement. They presented Qatar with a list of 13 wide-ranging demands and gave it an ultimatum to comply with them or face unspecified consequences.
