The country’s prime minister believes that the American and British attacks on the Houthis will only worsen the security situation in the Red Sea and that ceasing the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza is the solution. The Qatar-Qatari Prime Minister’s statements in Davos align with the country’s foreign policy strategy. Qatar is one of the largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporters, supplying it to European countries, mainly Germany. Qatar-Hamas-Iran-Houthi crowds support allows Doha to place itself in a unique geopolitical position. In terms of the potential threat that the halt of the passage of Qatari LNG through the Red Sea could pose to Europe’s energy security, it is not significant. Addressing the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Qatar’s Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, said on Tuesday that the American and British attacks on the Houthis can only worsen the security situation in the Red Sea and that the real solution to the security issues there is ceasing the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

According to Al Thani, the Western military intervention will neither bring an end to nor contain the Houthi attacks but will only escalate them, and the sole solution is to defuse the conflict in Gaza. “We need to address the central issue, which is Gaza, in order to get everything else defused…if we are just focusing on the symptoms and not treating the real issues, [solutions] will be temporary,” said Al Thani.
