Speaking during a press conference following the closing session of the 39th summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that their “brothers in Qatar know what is required of them to return as an active member of the council”.

“The members of the Gulf Cooperation Council are keen that the crisis with Qatar will have no impact on the Council,” Jubeir said.

“The Gulf states are one family and any disagreement is resolved within the Gulf house. The stance towards Qatar came to push it to change its policies,” Jubeir added.

The Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) 39th annual summit released a seven-point Riyadh Declaration which focused on unifying its member states in the fields of defense, economy and strategic partnerships.
