Qatar's low profile at Arab summit a 'message' to Iraq: PM



DOHA- Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem Al-Thani said his country was sending a "message" to Iraq's leadership by reducing its representation at the Arab Summit to a minimal.
Qatar "is not boycotting the summit, as much as it is sending a message to the brothers in Iraq," he said in an interview with Al-Jazeera, excerpts of which were posted Wednesday on the network's website.

The premier said he would have wanted the level of representation to be higher "but we will sit with them in the future and talk," he added. He did not elaborate.
Qatar is represented at the summit by its ambassador to the Cairo-based Arab League, Saif bin Muqaddam.
Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah is so far the only head of state from the Gulf expected to attend the summit that is held under tight security measures on Thursday.
