The people of Qatar, as citizens, are not in a position to make such decisions.”

The statement said the QFCC had been notified of the suspension.
“We do not yet know who initiated this decision.
We are working to clarify it.
We must respect the decision of the QFC and its leaders,” the statement said.

Blair said that the QCA and the Qatar FA had been working together to bring together all relevant parties to make sure this case would be resolved.
“In this process, I think there are some steps that are going to be taken,” he said.
“There are no formalities that need to be put in place but we are in a situation where there is a lot of work to do and that is why we need to act quickly and to make certain that we do everything we can to bring these issues to a resolution.”
FIFA, a U.S.-based organization that represents world football’s governing body, said the matter would be handled “according to the facts and circumstances”.
