Eritrea has expressed support for Saudi Arabia and its allies after they cut ties with Qatar.

The Eritrean Information Ministry's statement of support on Monday came despite its previously close ties with Qatar.

The statement said the initiative by Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates "is not confined to Qatar alone as the potential of Qatar is very limited," but is "one initiative among many in the right direction that envisages full realization of regional security and stability."

The three countries along with Bahrain cut ties to Qatar last week and have moved to block air, land and sea routes to the energy-rich Gulf nation.
