Qatar accused Saudi Arabia of "reckless behaviour" that is tearing apart a pro-Western Gulf bloc in the wake of a report that Riyadh threatened military action against Doha in a stand-off between regional powers.The Qatari foreign minister said the threat, reported to have been made in a letter from the Saudi king to France warning over a Russian arms deal with Doha, aims to further destabilise the region after Riyadh and its allies imposed a political and economic boycott on tiny Qatar a year ago.France's Le Monde reported on Saturday that Saudi King Salman sent a letter to French President Emmanuel Macron warning the kingdom could act militarily if Doha goes ahead with a deal to buy Russian S-400 missile air defence systems.A Qatari foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Twitter on Tuesday that there are talks to hold a summit in Washington in September on the Arab row, which Abu Dhabi and Riyadh have said is not a high priority and must be resolved within the GCC bloc.
