The statement was made, following the GCC summit in Riyadh. Despite the Saudi king’s invitation, Qatari Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani decided to skip the summit, sending the country's state minister for foreign affairs in his stead.
He stressed that Qatar needed to fulfil the Arab countries’ conditions to open the way for its return to the full-fledged work in the council.
The minister added that any conflict among the Gulf states must be resolved within the regional organization.
Qatar has been under a diplomatic and economic blockade since last June, when the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, among others, severed diplomatic relations and communication with Doha, accusing it of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs. Qatar has refuted the allegations.
