Saudi Arabia, Qatar reject Iraq's accusation of supporting ISIL

Saudi Arabia and Qatar have rejected Iraq’s accusations that the two countries are supporting and funding the ISIL insurgents.
The Saudi kingdom has warned against foreign meddling in Iraq and blamed Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for what it describes “pursuing sectarian policies”. Riyadh called for the formation of an Iraqi consensus government. Qatari Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyah also accused Baghdad of following policies based on ‘factional interests’. Iraqi prime minister has repeatedly said that Riyadh, Doha and some other Persian Gulf Arab states are supporting the insurgency in Iraq. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have also been at the forefront of funding insurgents in Syria.
