Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa
Qatar ‘needs to implement deal’
Manama, April 24, 2014
The return of Bahraini, Saudi, UAE ambassadors to Doha depends on Qatar’s implementation of an accord signed in Riyadh on November 23, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa has said.
The GCC foreign ministers’ meeting held in Riyadh recently to discuss the dispute with Qatar was just the beginning of a long process, he was quoted as saying in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
He also denied that discussions were taking place concerning Egypt joining the GCC as a member state, not even at the level of military co-operation.
He said GCC countries are looking forward to a change in Iran’s policies which currently serve neither GCC interests nor its interests with GCC countries. – TradeArabia News Service
