Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) secretary general Abdullatif al-Zayani “rejects accusations by Egypt’s permanent envoy at the Arab League that Qatar supports terrorism.”

Gulf Arab states voiced support for Qatar Thursday in its row with Egypt, which accused Doha of supporting “terrorism” during discussions about Cairo’s air strikes on jihadist targets in Libya, Agence France-Presse reported.

Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) secretary general Abdullatif al-Zayani “rejects accusations by Egypt’s permanent envoy at the Arab League that Qatar supports terrorism,” a statement said.

Zayani said the accusations are “unfounded, contradict reality, and ignore the sincere efforts by Qatar as well as the Gulf Cooperation Council and Arab states in combatting terrorism and extremism at all levels.”
