Doha: The Ministry of Interior said in a statement today that the State of Qatar, in accordance to its firm beliefs and principles, works on avoiding political conflicts with states and governments when dealing with their people. 

The statement stressed that the State of Qatar did not take any measures against residents of Qatar who hold the nationalities of countries that severed diplomatic ties or lowered diplomatic representations with the State of Qatar, on the back of hostile and tendentious campaigns against the country. 

The statement said that those residents have the complete freedom in staying in the State of Qatar in accordance with the laws and regulations adopted by the state, through a work contract approved by their countries or an entry visa granted to them.
