(MENAFN) Secretary-General of Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani condemned the Qatari media attacks targeting him, Al Qabas newspaper reported.
Al Zayani denounced what he called "irresponsible media attacks carried out by some Qatari news outlets toward the GCC and the Secretary-General, describing it as an unjust campaign that exceeded all customs, values and media professionalism".
Al Zayani expressed his deep surprise at the attempt by some Qatari media to hold the GCC Secretary-General as responsible for resolving the GCC crisis.
Al Zayani said, "Although officials in the Qatari government and the Qatari media are fully aware that the solution of the crisis and the end of its repercussions are in the hands of the GCC leaders, who are the members of the Supreme Council, and no one else. It is not the responsibility and duty of the Secretary-General, who receives and executes the decisions, directives and orders of the Supreme Council and the Ministerial Council only, committed to the provisions of the Statute of the Co-operation Council".
