This thesis discusses the reasons for Qatar's decision to continue supplying natural gas to UAE countries. This decision became a dilemma for Qatar because this decision occurred in the midst of a diplomatic crisis that occurred between the countries. This crisis began when four Arab countries namely Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the UAE assumed that Qatar had supported the Islamic terrorist movement by supporting the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood. Even Qatar has made closer relations with allies from Saudi Arabia, namely Iran. The impact of the diplomatic crisis has cut off much of the cooperation between them. Termination of land, air, and water transportation lines, even the blocking of Qatar's Al-Jazeera communication media, dramatically impacts the country's instability. In the midst of the ongoing crisis, there was one thing that was realized by the UAE. The country's electricity supply is supplied from Qatar. Even without supplies from Qatar, the city of Abu Dhabi is threatened with dark without electricity. This is where the Qatar dilemma occurs. Amid the crisis with a myriad of impacts on the country, will Qatar continue to supply its natural resources to the UAE? If yes, what is the reason for Qatar to continue providing supplies to the country that conflicts with it?
