Earlier in December, Qatar announced that it intended to leave the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) starting from January 1, 2019, to concentrate on its liquefied natural gas production.
The Emir of Qatar did not visit Saudi Arabia to participate in the annual GCC summit in December, despite an invitation from the Saudi king. The emir sent a lower level representative instead.

Qatar, in turn, has refuted all these allegations.
