Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE recall envoys to Qatar

Latest update : 2014-03-05

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain say they have recalled their ambassadors from the Gulf nation of Qatar over its alleged breach of a regional security deal.

The unprecedented move by the three states was announced on Wednesday in a joint statement on state media.

It’s the clearest sign yet of the rift between Gulf Arab nations and Qatar, which has been a staunch supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere.

Qatar has also denounced last year’s ouster of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood. Saudi Arabia and the UAE oppose the Brotherhood.

Abu Dhabi and Riyadh said the decision was made after Qatar failed to uphold its end of an agreement on security and stability of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council.
