Qatar solution within GCC, says Riyadh

Riyadh: The Qatar crisis, triggered by Doha’s support to terrorism, and the cutting off ties with Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, is not on the table at the upcoming meeting of Arab League states, Riyadh’s foreign minister said.

“The solution of Qatar will be within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC),” Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh ahead of the Arab Summit.

He was responding to an AFP question on whether the crisis was on the agenda at the meeting on Sunday, which is hosted by Saudi Arabia and joins 21 of the 22 Arab League member states.

Syria is technically a member of the league but has been suspended from the summit since 2011 over the government’s role in the war there.

Qatar has confirmed its attendance at the Saudi summit.

Riyadh and its allies broke off relations with Doha in June, accusing it of fostering close links with Tehran and supporting extremists.

Saudi Arabia’s push for a tough stand against Iran is expected to dominate the Arab League summit as regional tensions grow over the wars in Syria and Yemen.
