DUBAI, June 25 Iranian President Hassan Rouhani voiced support on Sunday for Qatar in its confrontation with Iran's rival Saudi Arabia and its allies, saying a "siege of Qatar is unacceptable", the state news agency IRNA reported.

In a meeting with economic figures, Rouhani pointed out to the former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's administration, saying that at the time, government's assets were given to bodies that were not really private.

While the Qatari Foreign Ministry has yet to issue an official reply, the director of the government's communications office, Sheikh Saif Al-Thani, called the Gulf States' demands "unrealistic" and said they were aimed at limiting Qatar's sovereignty.
