Bahrain FM: The right step to maintain GCC is to freeze Qatar’s membership

Published: Updated:

Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa tweeted “the right step to maintain GCC is to freeze Qatar’s membership” on Sunday.

The full tweet read “The right step to maintain the GCC is to freeze Qatar’s membership in the Council until it controls its mind and responds to the demands of our countries, but we are fine with it exiting the Council.”

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 dangerous steps for the security of the GCC countries.”

On May 5, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt snapped ties with Qatar over its support for terrorism and harboring of terrorists.
