On Saturday, the emirate's foreign minister said that Qatar would not meet any of the 13 demands and that the list "was meant to be rejected", pointing to the 10-day expiration date. On Wednesday, officials from the four countries will meet in Egypt to discuss additional steps. That meeting is due on Thursday.

However, the 48-hour extension in the deadline by the Saudi-led bloc may indicate a scope for diplomatic intervention if both sides agree to come to the negotiation table.

They severed ties with Qatar on June 5 over its alleged support for terrorism.
