Hassan al-Thawadi: World Cup is the perfect tool to fight terrorism – Talk to Al Jazeera.

Despite the ongoing GCC crisis and the blockade of Qatar approaching its third month, Qatar's authorities insist that it's business as usual. But regular import routes for food and building material into Qatar have been closed since June 5th, when several countries, including Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia cut ties with Qatar. So what is the impact of the Gulf crisis on the massive infrastructure projects that are under way to prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup? According to Hassan al-Thawadi, the secretary-general of the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, the impact has been minimal. "We have very quickly, moved on to plan B, found alternative sources of supply as well as alternative routes of supply … Projects are on schedule, no delays have occurred," he tells Al Jazeera. Meanwhile, the anti-Qatar campaign continues to intensify, with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates reportedly paying lobbyists to demand that FIFA withdraws Qatar's right to host the 2022 World Cup. They accuse Qatar of sponsoring "terrorism", allegations that Qatar continues to deny. "We were victims and the subject of a smear campaign, but we have always addressed it, always addressed our critics face to face … We intentionally looked to separate politics from sports," he says. "The State of Qatar's commitment in the combat against terrorism is evident and unwavering … Qatar recognises very clearly that there is a fight against terrorism and then there is a responsibility to prevent the environment that is conducive for extremist ideologies that leads to terrorist activities." Thawadi explains that prevention can only be done through supporting educational initiatives as well as creating economic stability and job opportunities. – Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe
