live here on al-jazeera english and streaming online at al-jazeera dot com come all the c.l.a. to let's bring in our zero senior political analyst mel when bashar who's in london . what did you make of the extraordinary scenes we saw yesterday at the arab league that the shouting match that they descended into. well to be honest with you it does reflect. the degree of of. tension but also a degree of pent up frustration on the part of the four countries that are really finding themselves cornered they're back to the wall one hundred days after they launched this campaign against qatar they thought they would be able to shake it down they thought with the accuse a sions of terror and the likes that they would get trump on their side and they would basically create perhaps
4:17 pm
a regime change in qatar and so on and so forth but really they're finding themselves quite desperately now alone the europeans the americans certainly the turks and the iranians and even the russians and others have all left the scene and find that this entire spat between the four countries and qatar is for lack of better word stupid counterproductive reckless and really after one hundred days one hundred reasons why this needs to end sooner or later so what happens next we switch a few days ago we had one president trump attempting to to intervene in only the way that the president trump can but we had this phone call between the cattery i'm in the crown prince in saudi arabia and then moments later it was all off again someone went off in a huff. well basically i'm just going to you know double down on what i just told you in terms of it was just and basically said that he is more the wooden than
4:18 pm
willing to die for dialogue and that he will be basically keeping the same distance from all the parties basically equal. and his criticism has been basically now directed to any country that supports or finances terrorism i think all of those factors are frustrating the saudis and the a variety s. and in so many ways just as they accepted to you know to to have that conversation and so on so forth i think they're turned around soon after that to go back to their usual frustration because they just feel like they need to get something for that campaign of deception you know all four countries against the smaller country cutter and and qatar is not basically is not giving in on any of the demands that will touch its sovereignty and it is willing to dialogue which basically takes us back to square one why launch this thing in the first place why even have the
4:19 pm
threat of use of military force when it's not in self defense when it's against everything that the gulf cooperation council and the arab league stands for all of that discourse is back to haunt them and in a sense they're trying to find a way and present trump gave them a ladder to climb down the qataris have gained them. a ladder to climb down but i think they're still finding it hard to swallow that all their demands all thirteen of them all their six principles are basically not finding you know receptive ears if you will in the region or beyond you can read more of mullens thoughts about zero dot com senior political analyst many thanks indeed now on in rainy london there. saudi arabia is rejecting calls for an international investigation into allegations of human rights violations in yemen the country's ambassador to the u.n. says the time is not right for an inquiry and he's hoping for
