Gulf crisis: Qatar ready to participate in US-GCC summit

He said any solution to the dispute between the GCC countries must be premised on the principles of equality between the nations of the region. The tensions in the Gulf region have been escalated since last June as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt cut ties with Qatar and imposed a land, sea, and air blockade after accusing it of supporting terrorism and extremism. Qatar has strongly denied the allegations and called other countries’ movement act of its sovereign and independent diplomacy interference.
