Al-Sabah’s request was made following a visit by Mecca Governor and adviser to King Salman Prince Khaled al-Faisal in which “bilateral relations… and the latest regional and international developments” were discussed.
Meanwhile, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani has announced that the recent move by Arab states has raised serious questions concerning the future of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC ).
He added that his country would re-evaluate its relations with the council if it starts imposing foreign agendas or attempts to interfere in Qatar’s affairs.
Thani further stressed that the move to isolate the Persian Gulf country was an unjustified one based on falsehoods and built on a smear campaign.
He further went on to note that the people of Qatar would not be affected by the current situation and that life would continue in the country.
Earlier, the ministry released a statement, expressing “regret and utter surprise” over the move by several Arab states.
“Qatar has been the target of a systematic incitement campaign that promoted outright lies, which indicates that there was a prior intent to harm the state,” read the statement.
It further stressed that Qatar respected the sovereignty of all other PGCC member states and had not interfered in their domestic affairs.
“Qatar is also dedicated to its obligation in the war on terrorism and extremism. It is clear that the media campaign against Qatar has failed, especially in [Persian] Gulf nations, which explains this escalation,” it added.
