Arab Quartet stresses Qatar must meet 13 demands to mend ties

  • They discussed the developments regarding the Qatari crisis and stressed the Quartet’s firm position on the necessity of Doha fulfilling the 13 demands that have been put forward

The Foreign Ministers of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain held a meeting on the sidelines of the 29th Arab League summit on Thursday in Riyadh, where senior Arab officials were discussing various political, security, and military developments facing the region.

They discussed the developments regarding the Qatari crisis and stressed the Quartet’s firm position on the necessity of Doha fulfilling the 13 demands that have been put forward, as well as its adherence to the Six Principles of Cairo Meeting and Manama Declaration as a necessary foundation for normalizing relations with them.

The four countries severed diplomatic and transport links with Qatar in June last year, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism and meddling in their internal affairs, and sparking the region’s worst diplomatic dispute in years. Doha has denied the accusations.

During the meeting, the ministers reiterated their solidarity and continued coordination of their positions to maintain security and stability in the Arab region as a whole and reject any attempt of external interference in the affairs of the Arab states, Saudi state press agency reported.
