Dubai: The foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt yesterday expressed regret over Qatar’s negative response to the principles, which reflects Doha’s incomprehension of the gravity of the situation.

“We cannot accept Qatar’s destructive role,” the four ministers said.

Sameh Shukri, Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, said the situation is no longer about accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism as there is solid evidence and witness accounts on Doha’s complicity.

“The response the four states got was overall negative and lacked any substance. We find it did not provide a basis for Qatar to retreat from its policies,” Shukri said reading a statement by the ministers after a meeting in Cairo.
