(MENAFN- Emirates News Agency (WAM))
MANAMA, 30th July, 2017 (WAM) -- H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has confirmed that the four countries boycotting the State of Qatar take the country's people into consideration before taking any step towards resolving the Qatari crisis.
Sheikh Abdullah made the remarks during a joint press conference held in Manama with the foreign ministers of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt.
Sheikh Abdullah said the main responsibility for the crisis lies with the Qatari state, which can easily function within its Arab periphery.
"It is for the Qatari leadership to decide the approach they want for Qatar and for the people of Qatar," he added.
He also indicated that the steps taken by the four countries are in line with the fundamental principles of international law and are a reflection of their commitment to the law.
"There is a consensus among the four countries that in every step we take, we try to minimise any impact on the brotherly people of Qatar."
"In 2013 and 2014, we had talks, following which, Qatar signed agreements but failed to honour them. Before entering into new commitments, Qatar should ask itself: Are we willing to commit, or will we dishonour our commitments again?" he added.
