The Address | Benghazi – Libya
DOHA – Chairman of the High Council of State (HCS), Khaled Al-Mishri, expressed on Monday his solidarity with Qatar against “the imposed siege” by Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt among others.
This came during Al-Mishri’s meeting with Qatar’s Emir, Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, in the capital Doha.
According to HCS’s media office, Al-Mishri and Al-Thani discussed “bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries and the political developments in the Arab and international arena.”
“The two sides stressed the need to uphold the political agreement as a reference point to resolve the crisis in Libya,” reads HCS’s statement.
During the meeting, Al-Mishri expressed “his solidarity with the State of Qatar over its siege, hoping that the crisis will be resolved through the Gulf Cooperation Council.”
In June 2017, several Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, cut ties with Qatar, citing its support for terrorism.
