Linguistically "mate taking" means relationship and friendship. Legitimately it means illegal relationship .We have adopted this term not to describe Qatari's diplomacy itself as having new style in the diplomatic work ,Yet to describe it from the viewpoint of those who deal with Qatar whiten they are governments or political movements ,and with whom Qatar has diplomatically dealt. Qatari's potentialities do not give it an effective role on the international and regional levels . For this reason it endeavored to play a regional role through working as mediator in solving regional conflicts among states or between states and same political or military movements resisting the regimes governing these states .It is wrath noticing that the nature of the Qatar –Saudi relations constituted another motive for Qatari in following this style of diplomacy seeking to scope the Saudi influence practiced towards the countries of the Arab Gulf, especially in the shadow of border disputes between the two states. In order to achieve this aim ,Qatar establishes a distinguishes relationships with the united states and after that (Israel)on the one hand , and promotes its relations with Iran and Syria on the other hand .Through this Qatar want to play the balancing factor in the regional relations in the Arab region ,and it was successful to a greet exteut supported by many factors the most important of witch are the financial and media potentials
