Six Gulf Arab countries have cut ties with Qatar. They say Qatar supports terrorism. Saudi Arabia said it has to protect its security. It said Qatar had terrorist groups that created instability in the region. Qatar said this is not true and the Arab countries are being unfair. It said the cut ties would not change people's lives in Qatar.

Qatar now has a difficult future. Air, land and sea links from the Arab nations are closed. This will be a problem for people in Qatar. There is a rush to buy food. Qatar Airways will have to change its routes. Stadiums for the 2022 World Cup will take longer to build. Citizens from Saudi and the UAE have 14 days to leave Qatar.
