DUBAI, June 14 Qatar National Bank
(QNB), the largest lender in the Middle East and Africa, has
seen no significant outflow of deposits since the diplomatic
rift started between Qatar and other Gulf countries, it told
Reuters on Wednesday.
It also had not seen any impact on its overall group
operations from its business in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi
Arabia and Egypt, the bank said in emailed answers to questions.
The biggest diplomatic row in years among the rich states of
the Gulf led to the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt last
week blacklisting a number of entities and the UAE central bank
urging banks in the UAE to act with caution in dealing with six
Qatari lenders, including QNB.
