Foreign minister Sameh Shoukry made the comments ahead of a deadline for Doha to respond to a list of demands from Arab countries to end its isolation.
Egypt joined the other Gulf countries in isolating Qatar earlier this month by cutting off diplomatic ties and closing down air, sea and land routes, They accuse the country of funding terrorist organisations in an attempt to interfere in domestic politics in the Arab world.
Most important to Egypt is the demand that Qatar “sever ties to all terrorist organisations” and specifically its reported funding of the Muslim Brotherhood both in Cairo and throughout the Middle East. Qatar has until Saturday to comply.
The UAE energy minister said on Thursday his country has sufficient resources to ward off any energy shortfall stemming from Gulf countries’ standoff with key gas supplier Qatar.
The UAE has no concerns about any shortfall “now or ever”, Mr Al Mazrouei told AP at an International Energy Agency conference in Paris.
Qatar supplies about a third of the UAE’s daily natural gas needs.
Efforts to mediate the crisis have stalled as the worst diplomatic crisis in the GCC’s history looks to continue into its fourth week.
Secretary of state Rex Tillerson has attempted to manoeuvre into the role of mediator and hosted a number of Gulf officials in Washington this week.
On Wednesday, Qatari foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani condemned Riyadh’s refusal to negotiate on the list of demands.
“It’s now up to Qatar to end its support for extremism and terrorism,” said Saudi foreign minister Adel Al Jubeir on Twitter.
