Cairo, Ramadan 10, 1438, Jun 5, 2017, SPA -- The Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt decided to sever diplomatic relations with the State of Qatar in the wake of Qatar's insistence on taking a hostile course against Egypt and the failure of all attempts to dissuade it from supporting the terrorist organizations, especially the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood and harboring its leaders.
This came in a statement issued today by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in which it attributed Egypt's decision on severing diplomatic ties to Qatar's promotion of ideology of al-Qaeda and Daesh (ISIS) and its support for terrorist operations in Sinai, as well as Qatar's insistence on interfering in the internal affairs of Egypt and the countries of the region, threatening the Arab national security and enhancing sedition and division within Arab societies based on a deliberate plot targeting the unity and interests of the Arab nation.
