Bahrain Will Not Participate in GCC Summit if Qatar is Present

Bahrain Will Not Participate in GCC Summit if Qatar is Present”

Bahrain's foreign minister on Monday suggested suspending Qatar's Gulf Cooperation Council membership until it accepts the demands of its Arab adversaries in the region's worst crisis in years.

He also tweeted: "Bahrain will not attend a summit and sit with Qatar, which is nearing Iran day after day and preparing foreign forces, which are risky steps for the security of the GCC countries".

Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa also said on his account on Twitter that "if Qatar thinks that its current playing with time and evading will buy it time till the upcoming GCC summit, then it's mistaken".

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut all diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar on June 5 over accusations it was supporting extremists and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

"Qatar has pursued policies aimed at the security of member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council".

"Bahrain will not attend the GCC summit if Qatar will participate because it is getting closer to Iran and deploying foreign forces, both of which are against the security of GCC countries", said Shaikh Khalid.

"Qatar has proved today that it does not respect charters, treaties and bonds upon which the GCC was founded", the king said during a cabinet meeting, cited by BNA news agency. "The situation remains the same, and it is a summit we won't be attending". It issued a list of 31 demands for Qatar to resolve the issue, that were rejected by Doha.

After severing ties with Doha, Riyadh and its allies closed land and maritime borders, suspended air links and expelled Qatari citizens. "It's... so obvious", Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani told CBS's 60 Minutes. They tried to do that before, in 1996 after my father became the emir.
