On the Qatari issue, he said that the Kingdom, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt have taken the recent position towards Qatar after the failure of all endeavors with Doha and its non-commitment after repeated demands, the latest ones in 2013 and 2014 to stop supporting extremism, terrorism, interference and fueling conflicts in other countries.

He explained that the recent decisions have been taken to send a message to Doha that it has gone too far, adding that we consider Qatar as an ally in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States, we do not seek for harming the Qatari people, but the current situation must be corrected as Doha can not continue its current policy and it must stop financing terrorism.
