Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa tweeted “Qatari media targeting the GCC and its secretary-general confirms Qatar’s lack of respect for the council, with it’s goal being to weaken and undermine it,” on Tuesday on his official account.

Earlier, GCC Secretary-General, Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, expressed his condemnation of what he called the “irresponsible media attacks carried out by some Qatari news outlets toward the GCC, describing it as an unjust campaign that exceeded all customs, values and media professionalism.”

Al-Zayani expressed his deep surprise at the attempt by some Qatari media to hold his position as GCC Secretary-General as responsible for resolving the Gulf crisis.

Sunday, Al-Khalifa tweeted “the right step to maintain GCC is to freeze Qatar’s membership.”

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.”
